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. 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
