Play In A Week - Fundraising


Please try to come along to fundraising events and tell your family and friends about them. They not only help raise money, but also help to raise awareness of PIAW in the wider community. If you know of any groups or could introduce us to an organisation where we could speak or take the publicity picture board and meet new people, please let us know at fundraising@playinaweek.org.uk.


Please click on the Easyfundraising box to the left of this text to find out more about how you can raise money for us while shopping online - and it won't even cost you a penny!

Collect Waitrose 'Green Tokens'

A green token collection bin

When you're out shopping please try to pop into your local Waitrose and pick up some of their 'Green Tokens' for us! Then, either drop them into our side of the collection box if it says "Play In A Week" on the top, or save them up and give them to us when you next see us.

Every green token counts! Each branch of Waitrose donates £1000 to three local good causes each month. The proportion of green tokens in your side of the collection bin equates to the proportion of the £1000 that you receive.

We regularly apply to all of the local Waitrose branches to be included in their Community Matters scheme. A few kind volunteers have taken on the task of making monthly applications in their own local shops, so we have the following shops covered at the moment: Bagshott, Cobham, Dorking, Epsom, Esher, Frimley, Hersham, Sandhurst, Sunningdale and Surbiton. We’d love someone to cover Guildford each month, and any other shops in the area we have missed! If you could help with this, please get in touch as we have application wording etc all ready to go and all you need to do is fill out the simple form once a month and drop it into the shop.

Hold your own event

Why not hold a fundraising event of your own? We will be pleased to support and help out whenever practical with any events or activities which are raising funds for Play In A Week. Please let us know about your event so that we can publicise and support you.

Make a donation!

We will be delighted to take cheques or cash if you would like to make a donation. If you are a taxpayer, we can also benefit from an additional 28% via Gift Aid which can be claimed through the charity status of Nomad Players Limited.

We are interested in notable, fun or high value items which we can use for specific fundraising activities. For example we received a very large cuddly polar bear which we used to raise both funds and interest in Play In A Week. We also need prizes for the raffles that we run during each public performance and at some of our fundraising events.

Please contact fundraising@playinaweek.org.uk for more information or assistance with making a donation.
