We are a registered charity and we do not make a profit on our work here, in fact due to low funding from the government we sadly lose money.
Here are some links to news articles and stories from the Early Years Alliance which highlight our issues.
In order to save as much money as we can we ask for donations from our families of the following items – in the words of Tesco – “Every Little Helps”! We also collect surplus food from Tesco and Aldi which we can use for snack and share with our families who need some extra help. We apply for grants to help us buy new equipment which is expensive and we have just heard that we have been successful for the Tesco Blue Tokens box for October – December which will give us £500-£1500! Please do use the tokens if offered as that money will mean we can put even more resources outside for the children.
You can also join our committee which is a fantastic way of understanding how pre-school works and hearing all the plans we have. You can help fundraise which is vital and help support the whole committee as an Officer – Chairperson, Treasurer or Secretary or as a committee member.
Donations of the following would be gratefully received please:-
Fruit or baking ingredients
Tiny plastic pots for a new project
Stationary for the children
shiny silver bangles or mug trees and curtain rings
Christmas ribbons and bows and wrapping paper and labels and cards and stickers
Any kind of pipe cleaners
Lovely pen sets and interesting biro’s and gel pens and bingo dabbers
