About The Holly Lodge Centre
The Centre offers a range of educational activities for groups of children, young people and adults – particularly those with disabilities, focused on the nature and Victorian heritage of the Park.  HRH Princess Alexandra has been the Centre’s Royal Patron since 2007.  Other patrons include Mike Fitt OBE (Founding Patron), Sir David Attenborough, Peter Davison, Baroness Susan Kramer, Ben Shephard, Tenors Un Limited (Paul Martin, Jem Sharples and Scott Ciscon), Robert Holmes and Adrian Mills.

The Centre operates on a budget of approximately £80,000 a year together with volunteer time valued at at least £70,000.  Funding comes from trusts and foundations, fund-raising events and individual donations.  Charges to visitors amount to only 15% of our costs: the Centre does not receive any monetary funding from central or local government.
