About Play2Give

Play2Give is an award-winning charity founded by brain injury survivor, Andrew Baker MBE BCAv. We raise funds, large and small, through numerous year-round events, sponsored fundraisers, raffles, stalls at events, tombolas and donations, with 100% used to meet our stated aims, and no amount goes towards staffing, we are a purely volunteer-driven group.

Where it all began

Since our very first football tournament in 2007, we have provided around £450,000 to date through the donations of funds raised, and through gifts provided at Christmas as part of our Sleigh2Give arm.

In total over 40 good causes and tens of thousands of individuals have been helped and benefited through our work.
