Chapman Lily Planning is proud to have celebrated the approval of the Brocks Pine surf lagoon and country park with valued local charities last week.

Local Town Planning consultants, Chapman Lily commissioning a series of limited-edition charity surfboards from Bravery. These exclusive surfboards were presented to local charities Purbeck Youth and Community Foundation, The Wave Project, and BOWRA Foundation during a special event at the Bravery Café in Poole on Thursday, 30 May.

The event, generously hosted by the Bravery Café free of charge, saw the charities presented with one-off surfboards, which they will use to raise awareness and funding for their very special causes.

Brett Spiller, Director at Chapman Lily, said:
“Chapman Lily Planning is thrilled to support our local community by donating these limited-edition surfboards. This initiative not only celebrates the exciting approval of Brocks Pine surf lagoon but also underscores our commitment to enhancing the wellbeing of our community. We are proud to partner with Bravery and raise awareness of the remarkable and vital work of Purbeck Youth and Community Foundation, The Wave Project, and BOWRA Foundation.”

A Trustee of Purbeck Youth & Community Foundation (PYCF), said:
"We are incredibly grateful to Chapman Lily Planning for their donation of a limited-edition surfboard. This unique gift will allow us to fundraise and we will be selling our raffle tickets through the summer and raising income for our Wareham Family hub. The hub brings together local community support   from a range of organisations   for 0-25 years and their families and others.  It’s really wonderful to see local businesses coming together to make a positive impact on the lives of families and youth in Purbeck."

A representative of The Wave Project, said:
"We plan to host a fundraising event and raffle the donated surf board, which will help fund our Surf Therapy programs and enable us to reach even more young people who are struggling with mental health challenges. The therapeutic power of surfing can be life-changing, and this support will make a real difference to the well-being of the children and young people we work with."

A representative from the BOWRA Foundation, said:
"This initiative is a fantastic boost for our efforts. We intend to auction the board at a future event, which will directly support our initiatives to help individuals recover from brain injuries through practical help and physical challenges. This donation will inspire hope and confidence in those we serve, empowering them on their journey to recovery."

The approval of the Brocks Pine surf lagoon in February 2024 by the Planning Inspectorate marks a once-in-a-generation opportunity to solidify Dorset's reputation as a premier surf destination. The surf lagoon is expected to provide countless people with access to the significant health and wellbeing benefits that come from surfing.
