Testimonials

"It has been an absolute pleasure to have been invited to support the efforts of Bourne2Play. A group of Mum's who I would describe as 'Ordinary Ladies doing an Extraordinary Thing' in their goal to improve the play area on the Well Head. We will continue to support them and would strongly recommend others to do so".

Richard Ludlow, Chairman, Bourne & District Round Table


"Encouraging children to play outside is important for the future health and happiness of the nation. The work that Bourne2Play is doing to improve play facilities for families in Bourne goes to show what can be achieved when like minded people come together to make a difference. I hope that enough money is raised to create the fun and inclusive park that they have in mind.".

MP Nick Boles, Minister of State for Skills and Enterprise
