Many of you know I am a mum to two little darlings, what many of you won’t know is I am on the Parent Committee for a local Charity Playgroup!
Legs (my 2.5 yr old) goes to Sherwood Playgroup It is a lovely group and has really benefitted him in a variety of ways and he loves going (we even have to play nursery at home!)!
There are over 60 children who attend the group throughout the week! It is very affordable for parents (lower fees than I have seen elsewhere), provides a wonderful learning atmosphere for the children and has a great Ofsted report! As a registered charity (No. 1004373), it really does rely on additional funds to the fees parents pay, these are normally gained through grants and fundraising!
The parent’s committee raise and manage funds for the playgroup and we are currently hoping to organise a Christmas Party (including visit and presents from Santa) for the children and to buy some new Sensory equipment which the group is in need of)
So why am I blogging about it? Well, as the Playgroup is a charity we are low on funds, so are doing a fundraising day on 3rd December 2010 and we are looking for help from others……I know you may want to help so here are some ways you can
Donate something for our Raffle or Tombola
Provide food/drinks for the party
Provide presents for the Children!
We will be having a board up throughout December to display all donators details (so please include some business cards when sending anything!)
Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help, anything will be very gratefully received!!
On a slightly side note, I also have a friend who is collecting book and toy donations to give to the Lincoln Hospital Children’s ward for Christmas, so if you can help with this please contact me too (stating this is the cause you would like to help with!!)
