Save Summer Playdays!  This is our new 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.

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

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