Our computer whizz Susanna has had a particularly busy month launching our It’s a Knockout! events page (it’s not too late to enter a team!) and our MyDonate profile, as well as registering us with Give As You Live and the PayPal Giving fund. The last two are a really easy way to support Playscape financially, simply by shopping or by having a clear out!


Register for free with Give As You Live and when it comes to doing your online food shop, booking a holiday or even renewing a broadband package you can support Great Shelford Playscape instantly – a percentage of every purchase you make via Give as You Live is donated to the charity. You can even get a good deal for yourself as they act as a price comparison website too! Visit for more details.


Don’t need any more things in your life? Then how about a de-clutter instead? On eBay, when selling your pre-loved items, you can nominate a charity of your choice and decide what percentage they receive from your listing. Simply use the “advanced tool” option when listing any items and there you’ll find the charity box, search for Shelford Playscape and job’s a good’un.


And finally, we were surprised and very grateful to receive a generous cheque for £1000 last month from a local resident. This latest donation takes the funds raised so far to well over the £10k mark – yippee!
