How we’re funded

The Playscheme is a registered charity (Charity No: 514978) and as such we are totally reliant on generous donations. We have worked very hard over the last few years to streamline our operation and become financially viable. In the past the scheme's future has been under threat due to rising costs and mounting debts. We are only too aware of the knife edge we live on, knowing that one bad year could cause us serious financial problems and put the scheme's future into jeopardy.

We are eternally grateful for the generous sponsorship and support of a range of companies who have helped to ensure the scheme continues and is viable.

Special Thanks must go to:

Speedy Hire Services | Duxbury DIY | Progress Housing Group | Enterprise plc | Sabre Ocean Solutions James Mercers | IDEAL Extinguishers | Mann Training Services

Our constant fund-raising continues throughout the year bringing in much needed funds. We organise our infamous bashes, paint balling events and a whole host of sponsored events.

A special mention must go to our partners who help to ensure our survival by providing us with goods and services at fantastic rates. We use a whole range of companies from plant hire companies and marquee hire through to transport providers and leisure venues.

Our partners are:-

Redline Transport | Smith's Marquees | GAP Hire | Elliot Hire | Blackburn Ice Arena | Shadsworth Leisure Centre | Pontins Southport | Bowlplex Blackburn | Puddletown Pirates | Boatel Party Cruises | Samlesbury Golf Centre | Waves Waterfun Centre, Blackburn | Morton Michel Insurance Services | Abacan Insurance Services | MC Webtree |
