Organisations and individuals we have helped

Over the charity’s lifetime we have helped provide so much in funds and in other ways to make a big difference to those who we support through our all-year-round fundraising.

Who has Play2Give supported?

We are delighted to have helped over 40 causes alongside numerous individuals in need throughout our lifetime.

From local children with disabilities requiring specialist trikes to innovative intensive physiotherapy at Footsteps to charities and organisations supporting adults with brain injuries (Oxford Head Injury Services), those living with terminal illnesses, through to helping children and families at Oxford Children’s Hospital, hospital teams and individuals disadvantaged and less fortunate supported by local groups.

To date, we have raised and provided over £500,000 in our lifetime from funds to the value of Christmas presents distributed, all making such an enormous difference to our community.
