Funds raised by fundraising team for the period 2014-2015

£ 6 500

What have be bought with all the funds? These funds now pay for all the French lessons, all the crafts and toys enjoyed by the kids including a dark tent and parachute, a new climbing frame, a new happy bear, butterfly garden, as always the entertainment and gifts for the kids on special occasions and we’ve even had little chicks hatch in the classroom! Some functional items like new blinds and a lunch box trolley were not forgotten, and remember the fairy garden and under the sea home corner, well you can guess where the money came from!

As well as numerous crafts and toys for the kids to use throughout the year, it has funded new Astroturf, a new book corner, new cloakroom benches and shoe storage, new monkey bars, a new touch screen laptop and computer desk for the kids and entertainment & gifts for the kids on special occasions.  We’ve also put aside some money to contribute towards a new building fund to name but some to things made possible by the funds raised.

 

Events and Fund Raising

         

We are very lucky to have a wonderful Pre-school setting, in it's own building and on the grounds of the catchment Primary school.  In the current financial climate this is further exaggerated by many Pre-schools closing due to the increasing costs and unfilled places.  Although we are managing to cover our operating costs and have funds to cover the necessities laid out by the Pre-school Trustee's, we do not have extra funds to improve the setting, which would facilitate an enhanced learning experience for the children.  We therefore rely on our calendar of fundraising events to raise money to enable us to make these improvements.

         

We currently focus on 3 areas: children, staff and building replacement - which will be required in the next decade.  The community spirit created by these events for parents and children is also valuable and generates further focus on providing our children with the best educational start they, and we, could possibly hope for.  If you are able to offer any time, make donations or general ideas, we would love to hear them but until then we look forward to your support at the next event.
