Over the years, the Parklane Foundation has grown and we’ve been very privileged to help those that are disadvantaged or less fortunate than ourselves. We’re proud of how we’re able to provide some people with a means to improve their lives in some way. Here’s some of the charity work we’re currently working on and we hope we can provide this support for many years to come.
In summer 2017, The Parklane Foundation became patrons of The Prince’s Trust. We’re proud to support this charity and to help young people have a better start in life.
Working with Leeds’ universities and Leeds Grammar School, we help underprivileged students and refugees through a scholarship programme so they can get the best education possible. We also provide bursaries to give people the opportunity to have a private education. Everyone deserves a good start in life and we hope this helps gives underprivileged young people the platform to get a good education.
The Parklane Foundation has done a lot of work in Malawi over the years. The family moved to the UK from Malawi in 1976 but always wanted to help those who were less fortunate and they’ve been able to do this in several ways. From housing project donations to providing several villages, and thousands of people, with clean drinking water, The Parklane Foundation is passionate about creating a better life for those living in poverty in Malawi.
We support Give A Gift, a concept that works with local children’s charities such as The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund at Leeds General Infirmary, and the Martin’s House Children’s Hospice.
The Parklane Foundation knows how important sport can be in a young person’s life. That’s why we help individuals enjoy the game of golf at a grass roots level by providing free membership to the junior teams. We also encourage local schools to get involved by bringing in our PGA professionals to do free lessons.
Park Avenue in Bradford are redeveloping their cricket ground and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be part of this multi-million pound project. We’ve signed a three-year agreement to support a redevelopment of the site which will include a brand new eight-lane netting facility where local cricketers can net free of charge.
Park Avenue was previously a staple venue in the cricketing calendar, hosting 306 First Class and 48 List A Matches and the ground is wanting to get back on the cricketing map. This redevelopment will give Bradford national recognition for using cricket as a positive vehicle for social inclusion and we’re proud that we can support this project.
