St. John’s is a community pre-school with charitable status. As a charity we rely heavily on donations in order to provide the environment and activities for our children that we are so proud of. Examples of the activities paid for by charitable funds raised include our refurbished outdoor area and our popular Woodland school. At the moment we are raising money for a minibus.
We receive a certain amount of government funding as part of the Early Years Scheme (see admissions). In addition to the procurement of individual grants, we rely on the involvement of our parents when it comes to fundraising.
We understand that not everyone has the time to sign up to be part of our fundraising team but we do our best to encourage parents and children to support events such as sponsored bounces, dressing up days and quiz nights.
The more money these events raise the more all of our children benefit. Events can be supported in a number of ways other than the giving of money. Can you spare a couple of hours to help out at our nearly new baby equipment sale for example? Do you have any unwanted Christmas gifts lurking that could become a raffle prize?
If you would like to help or join our fundraising team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
