Play2Give wins token votes in charity scheme

Published: 24th August 2020

A Didcot automotive company has revved up a local fundraising organisation to the tune of £250!

Play2Give won the latest token votes scheme through Draycott Engineering, and received a wheely great £250!

On 7 August, Play2Give founder Andy Baker visited the firm’s headquarters at Rich’s Sidings in Didcot to receive the generous donation from the automotive company.

Play2Give was Draycott Engineering’s latest quarterly giveaway winner, and their wonderful donation to vital fundraising work will go to towards supporting young carers in the town via “Be Free Young Carers” which supports the lives and wellbeing of young carers in Oxfordshire.

Andy was a young carer to his mother in his own childhood years, so  the link and support for this local charity holds a very personal connection.

Draycott Engineering loves to give back to the local community as part of its corporate social responsibility, and has supported around 42 charities so far with monthly donations of £250.

Play2Give is now around £330 away from reaching a total of £8,000 which has been raised for local good causes so far this year and has raised tens of thousands of pounds over nearly 13 years, supporting a wide variety of causes.

Play2Give turns thirteen in September, and was created by Andy, a former St Birinus School pupil, after being inspired to fundraise following treatment and care received from various Oxford medical teams throughout his childhood.
