ParkLife is a week long event in Bowling Park, Bradford when we run a broad range of inclusive and fun activities from 11am to 4pm every day with amazing support from the Friends of Bowling Park.
This year we had over 320 people attend across the week with over 200 coming for the BBQ on Friday. There is an amazing family friendly atmosphere there each day with young people joining in with arts and crafts, wide games and sports – including running a few laps of the park with the Marathon Man, Ben Smith.
Nathan, who has been through our young leaders programme and is now a regular volunteer for us, was there early each day to help put up the marquee and staying late with the rest of the young leaders team to pack it up again. Nathan starts an internship with e:merge in Bradford this September and having struggled to cope with life after school is now excited about the opportunities which he has in front of him.
