APE Project - an initiative which runs creative, eco workshops for children and young people - is hoping to return to Horfield Common for another year ... But first, they need to raise over £10k.

Following the success of this year's project, which saw 30 to 40 young people attending the free weekly sessions at the common, the community group has turned to crowdfunding to raise money for future outdoor play opportunities.

APE Project is calling on the public do donate through fundsurfer.com to help them reach their £10,750 goal.

In return for a donation, people will receive a gift. Donating £20, the person receives a limited edition, artist designed child's t-shirt; £50, a unique framed photograph of their child at an APE Project play session; £200, a VIP forest skills and cook-out session for all the family. Other gifts are also available.

Friends of Horfield Common volunteer, Anna-May, said: “It’s a great way to reach out to the local community and our network of supporters.

"If 50 local families come along to the unique VIP day experience on offer - we will have done it.

"If 200 sponsor the project with £50.00, their children will benefit from a whole year's worth of engaging outdoor and physical play activity.

"We want to provide play opportunities that are social and available to all and we’re really hopeful that people will get behind this.”
