SITA Trust announces £1 million Queen Elizabeth II Fields Fund

Thursday 11 November 2010

SITA Trust has joined forces with HRH The Duke of Cambridge and the Fields in Trust to support the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge.

2012 marks Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and we want to ensure that it is celebrated in fitting style. The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is a fantastic new campaign to protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities all across the country as a permanent living legacy of this great event. Once an area has been designated a Queen Elizabeth II Field an application can be made to SITA Trust’s £1 million fund for improvements to the recreation area.

There are two strands to the fund:

·         The QEII Fields Volunteer Support Fund will award up to a maximum of £5,000 for projects where it can be demonstrated that volunteers will be extensively involved in the delivery of a project. 
 
·         The QEII Major Works Fund will award up to a maximum of £25,000 for projects that also focus on delivery by volunteers, but will allow major works to be carried out by contractors. 

We anticipate this fund to open in mid 2011. Please click here if you would like to be notified when the fund opens.
