Designed to support organisations amid the current cost-of-living crisis, so far this year, Breakspear Park has awarded funds to the A-T Society – a charity supporting people with Ataxia-Telangiectasia (AT), a rare and complex genetic disorder affecting multiple systems in the body; Pets in Need Herts – a not-for-profit animal food bank that supports low-income locals with taking care of their pets; and Playskill - a charity that supports children with physical disabilities and delays, and their families across Hertfordshire.

The public is now invited to write in and nominate charities, projects, or causes they believe are worthy of this year’s final donation. All nominations for not-for-profit initiatives that benefit the residents of Hertfordshire will be considered.

Details of the top three nominations, chosen by Breakspear Park’s management team, will be announced via its Facebook page, giving the public a chance to vote for the project or cause that they feel deserves the £1,000 donation.
