The Boultham Park Capital Appeal

The Boultham Park Restoration Project will cost £4 million to complete and a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People initiative has brought in £2.7 million of grant funding. Investment by both the City of Lincoln Council and Linkage will contribute to the total, but a final £250,000 needs to be raised in match-funding.

Whether you are an individual or a business, your fundraising efforts can help us reach our goal. This page will provide all the information you need, from running your own fundraising event, taking on a sponsored challenge or becoming a Park Patron, Business Supporter or Major Sponsor.

The Capital Appeal has so far raised over half of its £250,000 target to make our plans a reality – thank you to everyone who has donated so far!
