Donations always welcome



We don't need a great deal to do our work but the truth is, if you want us to be effective, we have to ask you for a small donation.   (In fact, we've checked and we actually have spent under 250 in the past year to bring you: this site, Fair Play for Children News, added Publications and Library items. updated Facebook and Twitter, made Freedom of Information requests, written to Ministers, MPs, Councils etc - and reached many groups and people.  Imagine what we could do with 2500!   Volunteer effort = worth at least 24,000 in the same period btw.)
