Gledhow Fields

Community Playground

Opened March 1999


Gledhow Community Fields Playground was officially opened in March 1999 after being fundraised for by the Local Community and headed by Brackenwood Community Association (then under charity number  517725).

The Playground is a key part of our community and used by hundreds of children every day, particularly on any dry day after school.

The equipment is very outdated, not suitable for Toddlers, and not enough equipment in general.

Whilst we are working with Leeds City Council and Local Councillors, and applying for various funding to revamp our Playground, we do still need to raise lots of money ourselves.

Gledhow Wood Avenue Street Party

Thankyou so much to the Residents of Gledhow Wood Avenue who raised an amazing £536 in their Summer Street Party (after Justgiving fees) for the Gledhow Fields Playground Appeal.

In addition to this, one of the Residents has managed to secure matched funding from her employer, for a further £500 making their total raised £1036.

Matched funding is paid to us through CAF (a charity platform) which can take a number of weeks to process.  As at 13/10/23 we haven't received the matched funding money so haven't yet included this in the total raised for our Appeal.  As soon as we do, we will update our Fundraising Total to include this.
