Double bubble with Meals and Wheels

Click here to donate now. 

You will double your donation – and hundreds of children will get a double dose of fun – when you support our Meals and Wheels project through the Summer Give.

Only donations made between midday Monday 16 May and midday Wednesday 18 May will be doubled. 

We need your help to give children from some of London's most disadvantaged neighbourhoods the chance to take part in the truly transformative experience that is London Play's Go Kart Build and Race Day. 

This event sees teams of children from across London race first against the clock as they build go karts from a pile of wood and wheels; and then against one another.

Some have never hammered a nail into a piece of wood before. Others have rarely even ventured beyond their postcodes. The transformation that takes place - both in the children and in the machines that they create from scratch - has to be seen to be believed. 

In the run up to the event we will be working in five adventure playgrounds; delivering playful workshops and healthy meals, fuelling kids' minds and bodies and inspiring them to enter.



We need your donation to make it happen
But timing matters!

Donate between noon Mon 16 May and noon Wed 18 May
