Supporting the playgroup

Each year a number of our supporters take on challenges to raise money for the playgroup.

Georgie Fielden one of our exMums has set herself 10 challenges for 2016 to raise money for MOP and the Breakaway foundation, the two charities that have given her boys Danny and Eric amazing support over the past few years.

In 2016 on 25th September, Ian Newton rode forty-two miles in L’Etape London by Le Tour de France to raise funds for Marlow Opportunity Playgroup.

Also on 25th September, Steve Batey ran a half marathon to raise money for MOP.

You can visit our supporters fundraising pages here:

If you are thinking of holding an event with your friends and family to raise money for the playgroup, we can provide collection tins and promotional literature and give advice on setting up on-line giving sites for anyone brave enough to take on a challenge for MOPs.
