Pre-school and fundraising events

We are registered charity and rely on the fantastic efforts of volunteer fundraisers to buy new equipment and maintain an outstanding environment for the children.

Fundraising is an essential part of running Pre-School. The fees we receive only cover our basic overheads, so the Pre-School Committee run several key fundraising events each year to raise money for extras, such as new play equipment, refurbishing and extending the Pre-School facilities, and ICT equipment for the children to use.

Examples of the type of fundraising events we have run in the past are:

• Family Fun Day
• Race Night
• Sponsored Fun Run
• Autumn Fair
• Quiz night
• Bake sales and Coffee mornings
• Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Gifts
• Personalised Christmas cards and Tea Towels
• Auction of Promises evening
…… and many more.

If you would like to help with fundraising, please let us know that you are interested; not only do the community efforts raise people’s spirits, they are also good fun to take part in, so come and have some fun that will help contribute to the Pre-School’s success and enhance your child’s time in the setting.
