Current Fundraising Events

Sponsored Colour Collect

Every year in February, the group hold a sponsored colour collect for all the family to get involved in.  The money raised in the past years has been in excess of £1000.

Each child will be given a bag with a coloured sticker on it; red, green, blue or yellow.  The aim is to collect as many DIFFERENT items as possible; all of the same colour as the sticker and pack them in to the bag!  Lots of fun !!!

There will be 4 prizes for each room; boy and girl who collects the most items in the bag and collects the most sponsorship money.

Money raised will be used for toys, games, etc, which are used by all the children in Pre-School and the Grove.

Children love this event and it really is lots of fun for ALL the family to help and be involved in, so please ENJOY!


Red Heart Day

Massive Thank You to all children who brought in their pennies on Friday for Red Heart Day.  Today we banked £77.76 for the British Heart Foundation charity.  Thanks to everybody who took part.


CHRISTMAS FAYRE

THANK YOU so much for everyone who supported the Christmas Fayre and purchased additional raffle and lottery tickets after the nativities. The total amount raised was £1,110.00 which will go directly into the toy fund and YOUR children will benefit.



Macmillan Coffee Stay & Play

We held a Macmillian Coffee stay and play open day over two days.  It was a chance for families to come in and spend some time with their children in the classroom and to meet their keyworkers – who will be their ‘go to’ person over the next academic year.  During the time the families spent with us; which could be as little or as long as families could allow, they were invited to have refreshments and make a donation towards the Macmillian fund.

We were in undated with cakes that staff and families had made, as well as donations from Sainsbury's (who are supporting our charity throughout the year) and raised an amazing £400.08 over the two days.  We had a cake made by a Grandparent which was so beautifully decorated that we decided to raffle it at 50p per ticket and this was won by one of our children, Evie Clark from Green Room.

Over the two days we welcomed, Mums, Dads, Carers, Grandparents, Siblings and it was a very lovely two days of getting to know our families better and building relationships with our new parents alongside raising money for a very good charity.

THANK YOU

Sainsbury's Singalong
