Fields in Trust are thrilled to have the support of leading play equipment manufacturer and installer Proludic Ltd as their nominated charity partners.
Proludic believe that protecting open spaces so that children have the freedom to play outdoors is essential in the UK, particularly with rising concerns over childhood obesity and inactivity.
Established in 1988, family run Proludic firmly believe in putting children at the heart of everything they do. Present in over 40 countries and with over 65,000 play areas installed, they are known for their innovation, engagement, commitment and experience. Every sport and play product presented in their catalogue has a story and theme behind it that backs this ethos.
"All of the staff at Proludic are delighted to be supporting Fields in Trust as one of our chosen charities this year."
– Rob Baker, MD, Proludic Ltd
Proludic are getting behind Fields in Trust in a variety of ways:
- Landscape Architect and Designer for Proludic, JP Seymour, ran the London Marathon in April 2016 and raised over £1,500 in sponsorship for Fields in Trust. He completed the course in 3 hours 40 minutes, which was the fastest time by any of the Fields in Trust team!
- Proludic staff will be hosting their own Have a Field Days throughout the summer months on Fields in Trust protected sites close to their regional offices in order to raise awareness for the charity and encourage other local residents to make the most of their community green spaces.
- Proludic will also be showing their support by making a donation to Fields in Trust as their Charity of the Year.
- Fields in Trust members can enjoy 15% off play and sports equipment from Proludic.
Proludic Ltd Managing Director Rob Baker says: "We have a passionate team of active and dynamic staff at Proludic who love nothing more than coming together in their spare time to raise money for worthy causes. When we had the opportunity to support the fantastic work that Fields in Trust are doing to protect and safeguard the future of public open spaces and playing fields across the country it was something that we all wanted to get behind.
"There was an immediate synergy with what we do as our core business in the design & building of exciting and fun filled sports and play areas for families.
"Unfortunately we hear on a daily basis about funding cuts, closing facilities and reduced opportunities for free play provision and so the chance to support Fields in Trust, who are trying to protect fields so children have the freedom to play and get active, was a must.
"We have probably installed play equipment in over 50 sites that are currently Fields in Trust protected in recent years and we know these are making a significant difference to the societies that they sit within."
