My story

[p]I'm so proud to have been selected to run for PLAY ENGLAND in the 2021 London Marathon!!!!![/p][p]Play England has done so much to promote the design principles of high quality play spaces for the benefit of the children and I wanted to get behind them to raise some money for the charity.[/p][p]The reason I have chosen to run for Play England is because I am truly passionate about play (especially natural play) and I want to promote healthy play environments for children, to improve their health and wellbeing over the next 20 years. Play England is at the forefront of creating good play guidance which has been advising Landscape Architects and Play Designers for years and I want this to continue[/p][p]Each week I will promote on social media my campaign (inc sponsorship board for 25 play companies to sponsor me) along with updates on beneficial play activities and benefits of different types of play. [/p][p]With the advent of COVID19 it has highlighted the importance of outside time and the nature fix and I want people to take notice once more and create fabulous playful environments. [/p][p]I am running as Peely from Fortnite to show how kids are playing at the moment with social video messages about the importance of reduced screen time and more nature experiences. It will be a blast and my costume will receive much attention!!!!![/p][p]Each time I have raised money for the London Marathon I have used different techniques always reaching the target!!!! - [/p][p]I will incorporate all of them into one this time - from bucket collections at Supermarkets and Shops to pub crawls - [/p][p]I want to have a sponsorship board for play companies to get their name into the hat as supporting Play England which will give there reputation a boost. Family and Friends have always supported me along with employers. [/p][p]Please help me achieve the total of £2500[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
