Alison Moore Gwyn, Chief Executive of Fields in Trust said: ‘The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Inclusion Fund means that QEII Fields can be made as accessible as possible for all children to play on and enjoy. The fund can be used to ensure that the tangible legacy of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge fully realised its potential to enrich the lives of all.’
