Delighted to announce that we have only gone and done it our short presentation to Sainsburys Didcot's panel went so well this morning - 8th July - that we have won!!
Play2Give has been chosen by their 'Great Place to Work' panel as their Charity Partner for the next calendar year!
This means we will be their official fundraising partner for 2014-15 and will be teaming up with our friends at the store on fundraising events and initiatives over the next year.
We are truly shocked and flabbergasted to have been chosen as we were up against two other worthy deserving causes and were thrilled to just be short-listed in the top 3 finalists.
We are amazed and can't wait to begin our fundraising year with the store. What stood P2G out is that we are unique as we are a fundraising organisation that works to raise funds by raising money for local charities through events, such as football fun days and parties, to then distributing the funds we raise through events such as football fun days and fundraising parties to our chosen charities, like the Oxford Children's Hospital, Headway Oxfordshire and the Oxford Paediatric Eye Fund. We only raise these funds for these registered charities and P2G has raised over £25, 000 in nearly 7 years! !!
Thank you so much to lovely PRL Ambassador Veronica Dallas, the store manager Kevin everyone at the store for choosing Play2Give as the store's official fundraising partner with what will be an exciting year ahead.
Time to put thinking caps into motion and come up with some brilliant ways of raising funds at the store with customers and the staff. Got some ideas in mind so very excited for the year ahead. Watch this space!
2014 has started off as an astounding year to P2G's funds in a record breaking start with the fundraising party in February and looking set to be a record year!
