Pets Corner Project

Help us to win £50,000 towards improving Pets Corner, Abbey Park.

We have applied to The People's Millions Big Lottery Fund.  If our bid is successful we will be able to provide more opportunities for volunteer & work experience.  The funding will also help to improve access to pets' corner.  We will be able to install hand washing facilities for visitors, improve on the animals' environment and provide more educational awareness.

Voting will be on Wednesday 26th November 2014 when you can see our project on ITV Central East, between 6pm - 6.30pm.

Call for Volunteers

Leicester City Council is calling on people of all ages and from all walks of life to roll their sleeves up and get involved in helping maintenance, cleaning and improvement works.

As well as joining forces with the council's parks services teams to carry out the work, helpers will also be able to train to become Green Hat volunteers, who lead other volunteers in regular clean-up and planting days.

For further details of Park Force Volunteers contact 0116 454 1003
