As the Pre-school is a registered charity, we rely heavily on fundraising to increase our funds.
We need parents to organise, run and support our fundraising efforts in order to raise the funds to keep our fees as low as possible and to enable us to purchase new toys and equipment for the children. We hold regular fundraising events but are always open to new suggestions and accept all offers of help or donations.  We raise funds regularly from the following sites

We have set up an account with EasyFundraising which gives cashback to charities when you shop with hundreds of online shops e.g Tesco (including groceries), Amazon, Next, Toys R Us. Please support us by clicking through to the EasyFundraising website before you shop online. Our Pre-school fundraising page can be reached here  which you can then bookmark or by clicking on the banner ad on this page..

This is an easy and great way to raise funds, all you need to do is load our fundraising page on, register to support our cause and then locate the shop you want to use from their list.
