A Lincoln community project to restore one of the city’s largest parks has only £250,000 left to raise.
The Boultham Park Project aims to rejuvenate and regenerate the 50 acre park with its long existing links to Lincoln history.
Linkage, a disability charity and the City of Lincoln council, are behind the scheme and have just £250,000 left to raise in order to release the £3.7 million match-funding, from the Heritage Lottery.
However, along its 2 years of progress the original plan of replenishing and dredging the lake has had to be dropped.
They are expecting to raise over £100,000 from the Santa Fun Run in December, so progress is being swiftly made.
