Andy Baker is a community champion and has become a local legend due to his hard work and fundraising through Play2Give. I am amazed by his commitment, dedication and passion to help others. Well done Andy, congratulations and keep going

As a proud Patron of Play2Give I see up close the fantastic work he does for the community – and he started at the tender age of 14. He’s now raised over £250,000, which is more than most of us will do in a lifetime. A local hero.

Andy is an inspirational leader, he has the rare ability of being able to energise people from diverse backgrounds to come together and pursue a common goal, whether it be mobilising a company to engage in the community or organising communities to come together to help those among us who are most in need. His example removes excuses and his enthusiasm is infectious.
