Friends of Park Place

“Time, spiritual peace, kindness and laughter are great healers and all are found among the community of Friends of Park Place.”

Anne Gibbons, former Chairperson

The Friends of Park Place number almost 200 people from across the UK and beyond, who offer money, time, ideas and energy in support of the Sisters’ projects at Park Place and in the developing world.

The Friends are the Sisters’ ‘supporters club’, who extend the message of Park Place into the wider community. We come together for social and spiritual events, short courses and pilgrimages, enjoying each other’s company as much as the special ambience of Park Place. We also offer the Sisters practical support through our fundraising.

At Park Place our purchases include computers for the office, furniture, a public address system and a loop for the hard of hearing in the chapel. Recent fundraising for overseas projects culminated in supporting a Primary School in Tanzania.
