Playforce Events and Days

Fundraising events


Fundraising and charity are really important to us!

Find here useful dates for your calendar to organise events around social media days, take part in  charity events or meet us at conferences that Playforce will attend in the near future.

For the next three months, we will also direct you to teaching resources and ideas to make the social media days come alive in your school and raise the necessary funds to get the playground of your dreams!
