The Yard Adventure Centre

Visiting The Yard is a unique and dynamic adventure experienced every year by more than 1,500 children and young people with additional support needs. At this purpose-built indoor and outdoor adventure playground in Edinburgh, children and families can build confidence, learn new skills and develop independence.

The Corporate Real Estate team from Lloyds Banking Group chose The Yard as their beneficiary charity for a night of fundraising and raised £46,500 – including Matched Giving from the Foundation of over £23,000. The night involved a Decathlon of events including a hula hoop relay, bean bag toss and tower building for both employees and external contacts.

The Yard used the unrestricted funds to cover a variety of costs, including the running of school sessions and summer playschemes as well as the capital outlay of new toilets and drainage.
