As part of the Zetland Park Project, Falkirk Council in partnership with Friends of Zetland Park and Play as One Scotland would like to transform the Zetland Park play zone. Our aim is to make the Zetland Park play zone into a place where all children, no matter their ability or disability, can play together.
In September 2019 we were so excited that with support from individuals along with local schools and groups, we reached our first fundraising target of £5,500. With this £5,500 we will be able to purchase and install an accessible roundabout in Zetland Park. This roundabout will allow all children to enjoy the sensation of spinning, together, at the same time as the design can accommodate those with in wheelchairs/buggies alongside those who wish to sit on the seats or stand.
To build on the success of reaching the first target, we would like to extend our fundraising target to £19,000. The extra £13,500 will allow us to purchase a wheelchair swing, allowing wheelchair users the opportunity to experience the joy and physical benefits that access and use of a swing brings.
Exciting design ideas for the playarea have been developed, in partnership with the community and through this process we have identified just two pieces of specialist inclusive play equipment, an inclusive roundabout and a wheelchair swing that we are asking for your help fund.
To support the delivery of the wider play area design in addition to the £19,000 that we are asking the community to assist with, we are seeking other funding from a variety of sources:
- Falkirk Council capital funding
- Grant applications including National Lottery Heritage Fund
- Play As One Scotland fundraising
- Local business support

Gift Aid Declaration
Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 donated.
Gift Aid is reclaimed by MyParkScotland from the tax you pay for the current year. Your address is needed to identify you as a UK taxpayer.
By choosing a donation level that includes Gift Aid you confirm that I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
The additional funds generated through Gift Aid donations are invested in the park endowment fund which supports the long term management of our wonderful parks.
Please notify MyParkScotland if you:
- want to cancel this declaration
- change your name or home address
- no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains
If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code
MyParkScotland provides a safe and easy way to make a donation to support this great project.
To make a donation, click on ‘Support Now’ and select your choice of Gift Level. If you are a UK tax payer, selecting a Level which includes Gift Aid means that we can top up your donation at no extra cost to you. Adding Gift Aid typically means that your online donation of, for example, £10 becomes a park investment of £11.53 (after paying platform and management fees). You need to provide your address to enable us to claim Gift Aid.
Gift Aid is a Government scheme which allows charities to increase the value of donations made to them. Gift Aid makes a huge difference to small charities and local organisations, but if they aren’t registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator and HMRC, they can’t claim Gift Aid (and many that could claim Gift Aid don’t because they find the process too complicated). At MyParkScotland, we take care of the claim process on eligible donations, so that the Friends and community groups can concentrate on the great work they do in our parks.
We use PayPal to manage online donations and they charge a small platform fee for handling donations. We work hard to keep our fees as low as possible to make sure that as much of each donation as possible is invested in our parks. For donations without Gift Aid, at least 92% of your donation is invested in parks. MyParkScotland is a not-for-profit registered Scottish charity (No. SC045424) and any fees taken go towards covering essential operating costs.
