Row for Cover, organized by Holly McIntosh 30/03/2022

Hello everyone, we need your help!

As you may have noticed our canopy flew off in the recent storm, meaning we have no cover for the children in bad weather and in upcoming hot weather for shade.

The cost to the pre-school to have the canopy repaired is £2,500, which we unfortunately cannot accommodate in our budget as a charity. We will need to raise these funds to be able to have it fixed, as having a dry area for the children to play in the garden on wet weather days is really important to both children and staff.

We are hosting a fundraising event on Friday 29th April (weather dependent). Our Key Person Holly is taking on the challenge to row a marathon on a rowing machine in the garden throughout Friday, totalling 42,195m and she is expecting this to take 4-5 hours!

Please donate any amount if you can and cheer Holly on as much as you can!

Good morning, we are collecting items for junk modelling (making robots etc) like tall Pringle tubes, small boxes like cereal bar boxes, kitchen roll tubes etc for the children in September.

A reminder for Friday children will be making their own sandwiches at preschool so there is no need to bring a lunchbox just some fruit for snack time.


Good morning, we have a few children off with a high temperature and a cough. Please keep your child at home if they are unwell.
