As a registered charity, we rely on fundraising activities for additional income, which directly benefits our children. We are very fortunate to have wonderfully supportive and helpful parents and carers at the Pre-School, but rest assured this doesn’t mean that we constantly ask you for money!
There are many ways we look to raise money for the Pre-School. As well as our delicious cake sales, our fantastic Parents’ Committee also organise annual events and activities. This includes the Christmas Bake Sale, sponsored listen and dressing up for World Book Day, sports day and the Summer Fair.
There are also free ways to raise money for the Pre-School:
Amazon Smile: AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same selection of products as on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when customers shop through the URL smile.amazon.co.uk, AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the charitable organisations selected by customers. Please select us!
With easyfundraising.org.uk: you can generate a donation for the Pre-School when you shop online at over 2,700 online retailers (including many household names). In a nutshell, this is how it works:
- You register with easyfundraising.org.uk.
- Instead of going direct to your chosen retailer’s website, you first go to easyfundraising.org.uk.
- From that website, you click through to your chosen retailer to make your purchase, which tells them that you came from easyfundraising.org.uk.
- After you make your purchase, the retailer makes a cash reward which is turned into a donation to the Pre-School. Easyfundraising collect this and send it on to us at no extra cost.
Easy2name.com sells name labels and various personalised items (all of which are very useful for pre-school and school age children). All you have to do is select Christ Church Pre-School before you purchase and a 20% commission will be made.
Thank you to everyone (and a special thank you to our resident pirate!) who made the Summer Fair such a huge success. We’re already looking forward to next year!
Bag Mountain: thanks to all of our pre-school families for their fantastic response when we asked them to “Phil the Bag”
