We are working on which fundraising activities we can safely carry out within the current guidelines so please keep checking for ways in which you can help support our Preschool. If you have any ideas we would love to hear from you.
We had a wonderful time at North Leigh Primary School Christmas fair on Saturday 27th November and raised £170.40 for Preschool funds. Thank you to everyone who supported us there!
Our Christmas raffle is back this year and we have a fabulous selection of prizes, including a £70 voucher for the Royal Oak, Ramsden, vouchers for days out, a free hire from Witney Eco Party Packs, festive goodies and much more. The full list of prizes is available here.
The draw will take place at the children's Christmas party on 15th December. Tickets have come home with the children and there are more available from Pre-school. Please return all ticket stubs and money and any unsold tickets by Monday 13th December.
The Sparkler Stroll
We have recently completed a fundraising project and raised over £8500 to replaced the roof on our Pre-school building. We are thrilled that this work has now been carried out.
The next priority for our fundraising is replacing the floor surface in our building as well as renewing resources and other maintenance work on our building and garden.

From the 1st-5th November, our intrepid pre schoolers will be took part in a sponsored 'Sparkler Stroll' around the school grounds. They raised over £550 which is a fantastic total and will be put towards the pre-schoolers Christmas party as well as towards a new floor surface for the pre-school building.
During this time, they also learned about Bonfire night. This included how to stay safe around fire and fireworks, as well as the importance of protecting wildlife during this time. Before the walk, the children also had the opportunity to have their face painted and to carry homemade pretend sparklers. What more could we ask for - educational AND fun!
Following the success of our children's sponsored walk last year we decided it is the turn of the grown ups!
We are planned a sponsored walk which took place on Saturday 17th July, following a route of around 20km starting and ending at Pre-school.
We raised over £1200 for pre-school funds and are so grateful for everyone's support.
Our Pre-schoolers have created a lovely tea-towel design with their handprints. These will make a lovely memento of their year with us. These were sold for £6 each.
Car Boot Sale
Thank you to everyone who donated items for us to sell at Witney car boot sale. We raised £152.80 for Pre-school on the day and there are still donations coming in!
Virtual Balloon Race
This Easter we ran a virtual balloon race from 26th March to the 1st April to raise money for Preschool resources!
Balloons cost £3 each and there were lots of great prizes to win, including Easter craft kits and Easter eggs.
This event raised £134 for Pre-school. Thank you to everyone who supported us.
Our Pre-school children have now brought home their artwork for this year's Christmas cards! Don't forget to place your order using the details on the back of the artwork. Every order raises money for Preschool and you get some wonderful personalised cards to send to family and friends.
