Chestertons Polo in the Park, a 3 day event, donated another £5,000 to its local charity towards a new building for children from the Sands End area of Fulham.
Since 2014 Chestertons Polo in the Park and Chestertons have donated £65,000 to the Sands End Adventure Playground In Action. The new donation will allow it to build a new log cabin, the Sands End Social Shack, providing a safe haven for children.
The cabin is due to launch soon to support 200 young people, providing them with space to take part in activities such as drama workshops, art, music, as well as a place to socialise and hang out with friends.
Julie Cavanagh, Manager at Sands End, says, “We have been overwhelmed with donations from residents and businesses, including Chestertons. We hit our fundraising target a few weeks ago and are really excited about starting the build of our new cabin.“
Rory Heron, organiser of Chestertons Polo in the Park added, “Chestertons Polo in the Park takes place every year just a few minutes from Sands End. We’re very proud that our event can help provide much-needed facilities for young people in the area. The event this year is 7-9th June and we hope to raise another £15,000.”
