We no longer host corporate volunteering tasks at The Parks Trust. However there are lots of other ways you can support us and the local community/environment, here are a few ideas:
Organise a charity walk or bike ride through our parks. We have some fantastic routes already plotted out, including our 25 mile challenge route.
Care for your local park
Groups are welcome to organise their own litter pick of our parklands and we encourage business to take responsibility for the spaces adjacent to their premises to allow your employees to enjoy the advantages of getting outdoors on their breaks or before/after work. We have litter picking equipment that can be hired or if you would like to set up a more regular thing for your employees, then please get in touch with email@example.com
Sponsor a Canal Cruise
Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust (B&MK) operate an all-electric community trip boat in Milton Keynes called Electra. They are looking to connect more people with the canal and landscapes throughout Milton Keynes by offering free trips to some community groups. Your company can contribute to the B&MK Waterway Trust fund to enable them to run sponsored cruises for groups that would not otherwise access the relaxing and different environment of the canal and parks through MK
You can also charter trips for your business as a unique venue for a meeting, an away-day, a staff leisure outing, for marketing purposes with clients or even using Electra as a unique venue for your own business activity (eg wine sampling on the water).
Get in touch to discuss any of these options firstname.lastname@example.org
Dragon Boat Racing
The Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival is mainly aimed at corporate groups who are looking for a great team building day out whilst supporting and raising money for a local charity. This annual event is organised by New Wave Events Ltd. And held at Willen Lake.
