Sponsor an Amigo box and help share the fun of Wirral Unplugged with your community!
Every Amigo box purchased gives a family the opportunity to enjoy a magical Wirral Unplugged box, helping the life chances of all in our community, irrespective of background.
How does it work? We often get more requests for our boxes than we have funding for. Some of these families are in a tough spot financially or have a family member with additional needs and could use some support at home. If we can secure funding or donations, we prefer to let them choose from our boxes. Why? Because everyone is different, and some families are fascinated by Japan, while others want to deep-dive into the ancient world.
You can be confident when you give it’s giving 10 hours of high-quality, fun family time to someone in your community who will love it!
