SUPPORTERS - Who's doing what!

 

Who's doing what


A HUGE thank you to everyone who is helping to raise funds for the Playground.
To support any of the participants, their names will link to their online fundraising page.

If you are planning some wild challenge and would like to support the Playground, you can set up an online fundraising page by following this link.  We are now using MyDonate as they do not charge the 5% fees which JustGiving take from all donations.
