The Friends of Cotteridge Park needs your help to continue running free community activities.

Can you donate some money every month to keep these activities running for free now that grant funding is less available?

Click here to donate securely via Just Giving – you can even add Gift Aid to make your donation go further.

Your money will not be used to do the tasks that are the responsibility of Birmingham City Council – you already pay Council Tax for those.
