To mark their 15th birthday, Wellbeing Enterprises will be donating park benches across several boroughs in the Liverpool City Region and it wants members of the public to choose where these benches should be located.

The health and wellbeing social enterprise has launched its project ‘Peoples Park Benches’ which forms part of the organisations 15th birthday celebrations this month. A bench will be donated in each of the boroughs of Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool and St Helens, where the organisation has been operating for the last decade and a half.
