Researching massive growth in giving.center_img New name for National Playing Fields Association The National Playing Fields Association (NPFA), the charity that safeguards and improves the UK’s playing fields, outdoor recreation areas and playgrounds, has changed its working name to Fields in Trust (FIT) and adopted a new visual identity to reflect its expanding role.The charity was founded in 1925 and currently protects 1,189 sites protected from building development, covering almost 8300 acres.Alison Moore-Gwyn, chief executive of FIT, explained the need for the change of name. She said: “In its early years, the NPFA was solely involved in protecting community playing fields. But now our work has expanded to protecting and improving other recreation areas like kids playgrounds and leisure areas for older people. FIT more accurately reflects the type of work we are involved in and the new logo gives us a more dynamic image.” Advertisement Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropylast_img read more
