In 2011 the Friends of CHaT Parks recovered a number of benches from the old Art Gallery in Wakefield. They were in very poor condition and in need of complete restoration.
Since then Volunteers from the Friends of CHaT Parks have assisted service users from the adult day care work to restore the benches using materials donated or paid for by the Friends of CHaT Parks.
The refurbished benches will replace the vandalised ones in Thornes Park and are planned to be in place during the spring.
If you would like to lend your time to help work on the benches or make a donation to help pay for further restorations please email info@CHaTparks.org.uk
