Get involved with our #100in100 Campaign!

This year marks 100 years since the bequest of the House and Gardens by Henry Stephens for the enjoyment of the people. We are marking this exciting Centenary by fundraising to keep Stephens House & Gardens a special place for future generations to continue to enjoy. Unlike other public parks, we do not receive ongoing financial support from the local authority and as a result we are responsible for raising our own funds to cover costs of the upkeep, maintenance and improvements needed for the House and Gardens.

There are lots of ways you can get involved to help us achieve our fundraising goal. You can Name a Brick, make a donation, run your own fundraiser, become a Business Patron and also by simply letting people know about us! We have a dedicated section of the website where you can find out more, find some fundraising inspiration and make your online order for your own named brick. 

Let us know if you have any additional ideas of how you can help us. Together we can secure the future of our beautiful historic venue for all to enjoy in the years to come!
