Pre-school Parents Fundraise for the New Build

on Wednesday, 28 February 2018. Posted in Fundraising, Events

On Sunday 26 November Bridget Telfer, and her husband Kevin (parents of Rafe at pre-school), ran the Downton half marathon to raise funds for the pre-school's move into new purpose built premises in Downton next year. We'd like to congratulate both of them for completing the event and for raising £325 for the pre-school! What a fantastic achievement!

All funds raised will go towards equipment, furniture, IT equipment, toys and indoor and outdoor play equipment for the new build - which is due to open in September 2018! Thank you Bridget and Kevin.

As usual, the pre-school stall sold homemade gingerbread and hot chocolate. Thank you to everyone who made some gingerbread to sell and to the committee members and volunteers that worked so hard on the stall. We made £114.20 for the pre-school!

Thank you for your support.

Frock Swap

We would like to say a huge thank you for all the support we received at our Frock Swap in October. Local ladies had a great time swapping clothes, drinking prosecco, browsing the stalls and having their nails done!

It was a huge success with people already asking when our next event will be! We raised £542 which will go towards kitting out the new pre-school build.

A special thank you to Kate Drennan and the pre-school committee for organising and running such a successful fundraiser. Well done everyone.

Cuckoo Fair 2017

A huge thank you to everybody that supported the pre-school this Cuckoo Fair!

Whether you bought ducks for the duck race, helped out on our stall, brought your child along to the parade or just came along to our stall, you all deserve a big pat on the back. A huge thank you to all the local businesses that donated fantastic prizes for the duck race too.

We rely on all your help to make this a great fundraising event for the pre-school and more importantly, for the children.

This year we managed to raise £959.66! Even better than last year so thank you all.

Barnardo's Big Toddle

on Tuesday, 07 July 2015. Posted in Events

On 24th June the pre-school children took part in The Big Toddle to raise money for Barnardo's. This is the UK's biggest charity event for under 5's.

We set off from pre-school for a walk to the park, around the playing field and back to pre-school. Although this isn't a great distance, please remember that some of our children are only 2!

Thank you to everyone who sponsored the children. We managed to raise a fantastic £307.20!
