"Fields in Trust’s Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is helping to deliver the most fantastic legacy from the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. What's more, their London Legacy Fund is awarding grants of up to £10,000 and helping protect sports pitches and playgrounds right across the capital. I encourage all the Boroughs to get involved with the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge and take advantage of this chance to make our precious outdoor spaces even better."Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
