Crowdfunding parents bring playground to life: BBC News

Check out this BBC report on our first playground project! It’s at Hanover Primary School in Islington, perched overlooking the towpath on Regents Canal.

So far funding has come from a mix of parents, local businesses, a nearby property developer, and the Council. A local architectural practice has even chipped in!
