We are going to Court!

13th July 2017: Yes, we are going to the high court in London to:

Try to secure a legal declaration, to confirm the meaning of the 2009 Scheme which was supposed to protect Graves Park from sale or disposal. This will mean that the Council were acting illegally in selling off Cobnar Cottage and the charitable land on which it stands. Despite our campaign, we were unable to stop them going ahead with the sale, but we must make sure this never happens again and the Council are shown to have acted illegally

We are nearly there!

Papers have been filed, forms have been filled in and we are going to court!
We have already spent a considerable amount of money on legal fees. Our funds are seriously depleted and we are asking you to donate to our cause.

We need your support!
We need to raise another £10,000. The cost of going to court is high and we need as much support as possible to continue.
Please show your support by donating what you can.

Every little helps. Even a donation as small as £1 will help us to fight to protect the park. Just add the sum of your choice after the £ sign.

If you prefer, you can send cheques, made payable to "Friends of Graves Park" to the treasurer at 139, Mount View Road, SHEFFIELD S8 8PJ

PLEASE, please help us if you can. We have come this far and we are determined to pursue this to the end to ensure that Graves Park is saved for the people of Sheffield, as J G Graves wished.

If you can make a donation to our legal fees, this would be really helpful. It has already cost us a lot (money which could otherwise have been spent on improving the park); however we believe it is vital to protect the park from sale or disposal. We need to make a stand now!

Friends of Graves Park is run 100% by voulenteers and supported by YOU! Any funds raised are only spent on costs and supporting causes within Graves Park
