Friends of Acorns Pre-school are a non-profit making charity (charity no. 1031613) run by a committee of parent volunteers for the benefit of all our children. Over the past year funds raised by this extraordinary group of people enabled us to completely reburbish the pre-school, from new flooring, lighting and decorating to replacing furniture and changing the room layout, giving a lovely fresh feel to the pre-school.
In addition, they have spent money on outdoor clothing for the children, gifts for children when they move on to school as well as visits from exotic animals!
To raise these funds we have several different fundraising events throughout the year. Over the past year we have held a summer fair with Friends of Christian Malford School, held a quiz night and sold ice creams through the summer term.
In addition we help at three large Village events – the Bonfire Display and Village Fete as well as Christian Malford Scarecrow Trail, in return we receive a significant contribution to our projects.
We are always seeking volunteers to help for each event and sign up lists will be put up in the weeks prior. If you are able to assist in any way we would be extremely grateful.
Finally, we have a number of on-going smaller fundraising initiatives – donations from www.easyfundraising.org.uk, collecting milk bottle tops, printer cartridges, and old mobile phones.
This year we aim to raise enough money to replace some of the outdoor storage and equipement.
