Are you up for the Digital Detox Challenge? BAPP are looking for fundraisers to take on a Digital Detox Challenge on Saturday 26th August.The challenge is to not use any digital technology for 24 hours and be playful instead! Turn the internet OFF at home and on your phone as your

                challengeis to have NO Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest, Emails etc etc.

                You will still be able to make phone calls, watch TV (not catch up!) and send                   texts!

                Are YOU up for the Challenge? Get family and friends to donate through the

                BAPP Local Giving page.  There will be a fab prize for the person that raises

                the most money for BAPP.

                You will however, need to use technology to set the page up through Local

                https://localgiving.org/charity/bapp/ and click the Fundraise for Us orange

Bath Area Play Project (BAPP) are looking for a Trustee with an HR background or Business/Fundraising experience who is able to support alternative income generation ideas to enable BAPP to move away from reliance on commissioned income. More on our Trustee Needs.

Save Summer Playdays!  This is our appeal on LocalGiving. The Summer Play Days are a valuable resource for many families who live in Bath and those who visit during the holidays. You may have seen our staff team in local parks and open spaces, bringing activities and play equipment to encourage children

                 to have fun outdoors - whatever the weather! We are the only organisation

                 providing these play opportunities in Bath and we know families would like

                 them to continue. We can only do this if we raise sufficient funds.  Please

                 support us if you can. Donate here.
