Local charity link up sought by MK based 360 Play

Date Posted:30/07/2014

360 Play Milton KeynesMilton Keynes’ favourite children’s play centre 360 Play is looking to link up with a local children’s charity and help support the chosen organisation over a 12 month period as its official charity.

Situated at Knowlhill, 360 Play is a popular destination for families with young children and features a wide range of fun activities designed to encourage children to be physically active as well as to learn as they play.  And as a way of supporting the city and getting further involved with the local community the company is now looking to become involved with another of the many children’s charities based in the Milton Keynes area.

“Our first experience in linking with a local charity began in 2013 and was with The Henry Allen Appeal which we have worked with during the past 12 months or so,” noted Adam Skinner, 360 Play’s business development manager. “With the period for that arrangement now at an end we’d like to continue with this initiative and are looking for other children’s charities who feel 360 Play could help with their fund raising and other activities to put themselves forward for consideration as our next official charity.

“As a family orientated business providing high quality fun, active, learn-through-play opportunities for families with children aged two to 12, we want to be involved in the local community in various ways and would like to continue with our charitable support. It’s a natural fit with what we do and we feel we have lots to offer whichever organisation we might link up with.”

Skinner noted that 360 Play would work with the chosen charity on a variety of fundraising initiatives which could, he said, include charity events held by 360 Play itself, with a percentage of profits going to the supported organisation, the use of the 360 Play premises for a fundraising event and the provision of raffle prizes for further fundraising activities, among others.

And as an example of the support 360 Play provides to numerous local groups and organisations annually in the three areas around the UK in which it currently operates, Skinner added that during the past 12 months, as a group, the company has donated in excess of 1,100 raffle prizes and attended over 60 different events.

If you are involved in a local charity and would like to register your organisation’s interest in becoming 360 Play’s officially supported charity for 2014/15, please email Andrew Mellor at in the first instance, stating the reasons why you feel your charity should be considered.
