More play opportunities for children after cash boost

Children on the Isle of Man are benefitting from a donation from Manx Telecom.

It’s given Isle of Play a cash injection as part of the It’s Our Community scheme.

The charity has bought equipment and materials which will encourage children to play outdoors.

Chief Executive Officer Chris Gregory says: “Huge thanks to Manx Telecom for their support.

“Since we formed in May 2018 they have been incredibly supportive donating materials and inviting us to be a part of their stand at the Royal Manx Agricultural Show.

“We pride ourselves on not having expensive overheads with our brilliant trustees volunteering their diverse skills to take care of all our legal and accounting needs.

“Good play opportunities shouldn’t be expensive, so this money will go a long way in helping us buy resources that we know the children will love.”

Isle of Play was one of 14 organisations that received 2018 Manx Telecom It’s Our Community grants.

The annual scheme is open to Isle of Man charities, sports clubs, schools, voluntary or community groups with £100 to £1,000 grants available.
