A huge thank you from Abney Park!

We have been overwhelmed by your generosity and genuinely touched by the support we have received from our local community and friends further afield. Coinciding with our 180th anniversary celebrations, we reached our fundraising target of £10,000, ensuring our survival for the immediate future. We are now confident that we can cover our basic overheads for this year and stabilise the Trust’s staffing position. We owe all this to you and for that we are truly grateful.

We are now looking forward to planning a virtual events programme over the summer months as well as producing a series of audio tours and publications on Abney as part of our mission to promote the park’s history, wildlife and role in the community.

Having successfully completed work on Sir Isaac Watts’ monument, we are keen to continue with our programme of monument restoration with plans to restore the Celtic Cross and Williams’ Sarcophagus.

We are still unable to raise significant revenues through our virtual events and recordings. Therefore, we will continue to seek support through donations to ensure we can fulfil our mission to care for and promote the park’s unique wildlife, biodiversity and rich cultural heritage.
