Help more children to play

Play is so important for children. It’s how they learn, explore the world around them, make friends, and feel good. 

But the truth is, the pandemic has made it even harder for millions of children in the UK and around the world to get the things that give them the freedom to play. Things like good food, medicine and education. 

Please donate today to help more children get the things they need to grow up happy, healthy and free to play
