Commemorative Sponsorship Scheme

Park bench

Currently we are offering a limited service for those wishing to to sponsor a park seat or a tree in a park or green space in Burnley. 

Bench

The park benches (pictured) have been lovingly restored by a skilled volunteer to a high standard.  Your sponsorship will include the installation of a stainless steel commemorative plaque which will include the wording of your choice.

It is important that you read the terms and conditions first which are available on the downloads section of this page.

The cost of a bench sponsorship will in Thompson Park be £350 and subject to terms and conditions.  The cost of benches in other parks will vary depending on location and type.

Tree

A commemorative tree can be sponsored which includes the supply, planting, post, inscribed plaque and aftercare.  The park and exact location will be subject to availability which is carefully considered by the Council.  The considerations that must be made by the council include:

  • Space for the tree to grow into its proper form
  • Suitability of the site
  • Closeness to other trees
  • Suitability of the species for the park/green space and characteristics of the tree

It is important that you read the terms and conditions first which are available on the downloads section of this page.
