MPs encourage nominations for deserving families to get free tickets to 360 Play in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes MPs, Ben Everitt and Iain Stewart, have encouraged people to nominate deserving families to receive free tickets to 360 Play.

360 Play’s founder Duncan Phillips has pledged £60,000 worth of tickets for children and families who have struggled during lockdown as part of the business’ Young Minds Campaign.

And after visiting the centre on Friday to see the positive impact re-opening was having on hundreds of families across MK, Ben and Iain are encouraging people to nominate family, friends and colleagues to win free tickets.

There are many reasons a person can nominate someone to receive free tickets to 360 Play. From children not seeing a parent as much due to them being a frontline worker to a child going above and beyond to help others, the main theme is that they could really use with a fun and much-needed experience at 360 Play.

Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, said: “This is such a wonderful offer from 360 Play who have seen the impact lockdowns have had on children and families across the country and are doing their bit to help out.

“It was lovely to see so many families back out enjoying themselves in a COVID-safe way at 360 Play so if you know anybody who would really benefit from tickets please do nominate them and help boost mental wellbeing across Milton Keynes.”

Iain Stewart, the MP for Milton Keynes South, added: "The children of Milton Keynes have had a really difficult time during the coronavirus pandemic and that is why I am championing the Young Minds Campaign by 360 Play. 

"By allowing people to nominate families and children who have experienced a tough time to receive free tickets to 360 Play, it will give children the long-awaited opportunity to create childhood memories and be children again!

"If you know of a family or children that could do with a visit to 360 Play, I encourage you to nominate them."

Duncan Phillips, founder of 360 Play, added: “I am passionate that its now we need to get our children out from home lockdowns and start playing together with others in safe and creative settings that will help re introduce them to social interaction off screens. 

“Through our Young Minds Campaign if we can reach out and give just one family some help right now it will have been a success. 

“That’s why I am so proud to play our part reaching out to thousands of families who may not have the ability to access our sites to come along as or guests and play again in active and open settings, I look forward to hearing our centres full of play and laughter again.“
