On Friday 7th September 2018, Coram’s Fields announced the official reopening of their nursery playground, after receiving a grant of £18,902 from the London Taxi Drivers’ Charity for Children (LTCFC).
The grant has paid for the resurfacing of the outdoor nursery playground with fun, interactive designs painted on the surface and for the purchase of new, mobile educational play equipment, which supports the development of children attending the nursery.
Coram’s Fields, situated in Camden, serves as a safe place for all children to have fun and play and is one of London’s most unique and beloved children’s charities.
In the economic climate, with reduced funding available, the nursery has been able to cover its running costs, but without additional fundraised income, it could not invest in the nursery’s facilities and resources to maintain the space.
On the day, the Mayor of Camden, Councillor Jenny Headlam-Wells unveiled the plaque in memory of the late William ‘Bill’ Tyzack BEM, former LTCFC Life President.
Both charities were delighted to be joined by family members of the late William ‘Bill’ Tyzack BEM and Belinda, Bill’s daughter, cut the ribbon to officially reopen the nursery playground.
Michael Son BEM, LTCFC charity Chairman commented:
“This grant from the LTCFC towards the redevelopment of the nursery playground will make a huge difference to the children who use this space every day, both now and in years to come.
“We are honoured that in our 90th year, the nursery playground will be named in memory of our former LTCFC Life President, William ‘Bill’ Tyzack BEM.
“We are so proud of our charity’s success and achievements over the last 90 years. We could not do it without the generous donations we receive and the continued passion that is shown by taxi drivers and committee members, who provide their services voluntary, ensuring that donations go straight to those that need them most, the children.”
Stuart Woods, Chief Executive of Coram’s Fields commented:
“Coram’s Fields has enjoyed a long association with the LTCFC, having previously received funding towards our play sandpits some years ago.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have received the LTCFC’s landmark grant in their 90th year of £18,902 and we are delighted to reopen this wonderfully restored outdoor playground. This grant has transformed the area.
“The LTCFC’s support will benefit local children now and for many years to come. Thank you!”
