We depend on the committee and parents/carers to support us in our fundraising efforts.  Without fundraising, we cannot have special events or buy new equipment, so we organise a number of events throughout the year.  These include:

Christmas Cards
Christmas Fair & Raffle
Cake/Bun Sales
Easter Egg Decorating Competition
Spring Fair
Sponsored Pea Hunt

We really welcome new ideas for fundraising, and would love to hear from any parents/carers who want to get involved.

Many thanks to Marlene (Armand’s mum) for her brilliant idea of having a sale, and for nurturing lots of seedlings that enabled us to have many lovely plants to sell. Thank you also to everyone who made and donated cakes, and for coming along to help support a successful event.

Many thanks to all those who have sponsored the children in the Great Pea Hunt. They have been absolutely fantastic in spotting the peas and so have the staff in counting them all!

Heslington Pre-school has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund

We submitted an application at the end of last year to the Co-op Local Community Fund and we have been successful in being chosen for the latest round of funding.

1% of everything Co-op members spend on Co-op branded products and services go to the local cause you choose. 

What a brilliant morning on Saturday 25th November at the Co-op Hull Road. The Pre-School officially accepted £3946.68 from the Local Community Fund. We are so amazed by the figure that has been raised. A special thank you to the local community and to the Co-op. This will allow us to install a piece of outdoor equipment and to use this money towards the outdoor area in the future.
