We’re partnering with Save the Children this summer to help get children active and playing outside again.
We are asking organisations to pledge to support a #SummerOfPlay as the COVID-19 restrictions ease. The number of pledgers will strengthen the open letter to the UK government, calling on them to back the #SummerOfPlay initiative and provide additional funding.
In July we will be launching our #commUNITY campaign; uniting companies and communities to get back to the things they love. We will be distributing products to support summer activities and play, helping children get mentally and physically active to combat loneliness and drive a positive impact on mental health. Look out for updates on our Facebook page and through our weekly product flyers from July onwards.
