We are raising funds for children's play in our area to enable us to carry on providing children with chances to use their imagination.

We have been around as a Charity for over 30 years and have never been so busy but ongoing continuous cuts in funding have reduced our staff and we are struggling to continue. We currently provide play opportunities for over 6,500 children a year, a lot of it free and run a community centre visited 11, 000 times a year by community groups in our area covering interests from Archery to Yoga, craft to Tank talks and most things in between. We also run a Lego club, a Saturday Funclub for disabled children and Christmas wreath making and flower arranging. We also provide parents, carers, schools and preschools with scrap resources for play, a Toy library and equipment hire service and support our local Book Festival, Hospice and recently the Ovo Tour of Britain. Please support the work we do in the community with children and adults it really does make a difference to lives.
