Fundraisers boost March pre-school funds
Children at a March pre-school are set to benefit after more than £2,200 was raised for new toys and resources.
Maple Grove Community Group is celebrating after the amount was raised at two annual fundraisers.
It’s Colour Collect competition, where youngsters are sponsored to collect as many items as they can of one colour to fit in a box, raised £1,901.80.
And its Easter Egg hunt last month raised a further £380.10. Lucy Neugebauer, the pre-school’s finance manager and administrative assistant, said: “The funds have been banked for new toys and resources for the group. It’s an amazing amount which we thank all our children and families for.” The next fundraising event at the pre-school, which is currently undergoing an extension, is its annual summer fayre on Saturday, July 2, from 11am to 2pm. • The winners of the Colour Collect competition received a certificate (pictured) and a small prize.
