The Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST) charity Sports Garden on Union Street is set to open again throughout the summer and invites ALL ages to come and play free sports! But in order to make this happen they need the help of local businesses. They are asking for your kind and generous support by pledging a donation of £400 so that BOST can continue to provide the whole communtiy - from local businesses to schools and residents - with amazing, free sports opportunities this year. 

Last summer BOST organised more than 12,000 free sports tasters, where adults and children alike had the opportunity to try many different sports. Thanks to the work of BOST this previously disused space in SE1 now has state-of-the-art AstroTurf, 400 tons of sand for beach football or volleyball, table tennis and basketball, as well as nets, bats and balls for netball, tennis and badminton. 

The money raised through business donations will enable BOST to employ welcoming staff to manage bookings, hand out equipment, organise games and - more importantly - keep The Sports Garden a safe environment for all local businesses and residents to play in. 

As an added incentive, any firm that makes the £400 donation before the end of April will be eligible for priority booking of a corporate team building party in The Sports Garden in 2013. Spaces are naturally limited as we only have one summer a year! Team building parties cost between £1000 to £6000, accommodate up to 300 people and cater for all tastes and requirements. Whether you want to have fun on the beach and decking area with a Tiki Tiki party or be more professional and hire a sports coacth to run organised events, BOST can help. In addition, they have comedy commentators and a PA system available to hire, as well as catering facilities for drinks and refreshments. All donors will be displayed on the Sports Garden equipment lock up so people know who to thank!

If you think you could help BOST achieve their goal, email info [at] with your company pledge or get ahead of the game and book your party now.
