Story

Since 1971, Milton Keynes Play Association has delighted generations of MK residents with fun-filled play sessions - creating memories of playing on bouncy castles, face painting, crafting under the shade of a gazebo and sliding down our water slip-and-slide.

We also run the MK Scrapstore which takes in more than 60 tonnes of industrial waste each year - that would've otherwise been sent to landfill - which is repurposed for arts and crafts, and creative play. This service has continued throughout lockdown, on a no-contact basis, where families order a craft box by email, provide a suggested donation, and collect their box from the Scrapstore car park at Kiln Farm.

During lockdown, the team has been busy creating worksheets and how-to videos to help parents support their children's learning and development while away from school.

After lockdown, we look forward to resuming our ever-popular low-cost training sessions and adapting them to accommodate the new coronavirus guidelines. Our training sessions range from health and safety to paediatric first aid, which help to keep children safe in a variety of environments.

MKPA's 50th Anniversary | Show your support

Next year, MKPA will have been running for 50 years and we need your help to ensure we survive this difficult period and celebrate our 50th anniversary.

We are asking kind people like yourself to donate just £5 to help us reach our target of £50,000 by our 50th anniversary.

Your money will go towards keeping this charity running, creating craft boxes for the children of Milton Keynes and hosting essential training sessions to keep children safe.

If you'd like to see this long-standing local charity reach its 50th year, achieve its £50,000 target and continue to provide play for children across MK, then please donate today.
