20 local businesses needed for our 100km Business Challenge to help us reimagine parks

We’re looking for 20 local businesses to get their walking boots on and help raise vital funds for the two cities’ parks and green spaces.

Our 100km Business Challenge will take place in September, and we’re calling for 20 businesses to sign up to it. All you have to do is commit to raising a minimum of £500 and then walk or run 100km by the end of the month – or cover the distance any other creative way you choose.

Join us to reimagine parks

Reimagining Parks Camp

The money raised will go towards our ambitious new campaign, Reimagining Parks. We are aiming to tackle the barriers that mean around a third of the local population struggles to access their local park or green space.

Our campaign has a huge ambition for everyone in Bristol and Bath to have a park that is accessible to them within a ten-minute reach of where they live, work or study. That means making them physically accessible for Disabled people and their carers, designed with the safety and enjoyment of women and girls in mind, and used to support people with mental health issues.

Charlee Bennett, our chief executive, says

Parks are nature-rich, free to use, community assets that are good for everyone’s mental and physical health, but they have historically been designed through a very narrow lens. That means there are literally hundreds of thousands of people in our two cities who feel unable to make the most of their local green spaces.

“It’s actually not difficult to make parks more accessible – it involves simple measures like creating wheelchair-friendly access, having accessible toilets, clear sight lines for safety, and introducing inclusive activities such as sensory walks and wellbeing activities. Unfortunately, many of these measures are not possible within the shrinking budgets that local authorities have available to them.”
