‘Friends of Fittleworth Playgroup’ is a voluntary group run by parents to help raise much needed funds for toys and equipment for the children. Throughout the year we hold various charity events; including our Christmas nativity, Sports Day, Fittleworth Garden Trail lunches and parties for the children. Any profits and or, funds are invested straight back into the Playgroup.
Friends of Fittleworth Playgroup’ plays a vital role for Fittleworth Playgroup and we really appreciate the continued support from parents and friends so that we can continue to provide your children with exciting new equipment, outsourced activities such as Music, IT, Phonics and French lessons and all the extras that help make our Playgroup what it is. We are a registered charity 1057649
Fundraising events in 2016;
~ held a sponsored bounce competition for the children to get involved in, near the start of the year and raised £540.
~ catered plough mans style lunches for the village garden trail in May and raised £315.
~ held our annual sports day fun afternoon for the children in the summer, including a homemade cake sale, raffle and Tom bola and raised £370.
Then to finish the year in great tradition, the Christmas production! The children worked so hard and sang their little hearts out to full audiences over two days. We held a grand raffle, homemade cakes sale, homemade Christmas decorations by all the children to sell and not forgetting the penguin balloons! We raised an impressive £980!
None of these events would have been possible without all the help we received nor the participation and generous monies spent from our parents, family & friends. The support the playgroup receives is so very appriciated and necessary, so Thankyou all, from all of us here at the playgroup.
We are always needing people to join our circle of friends, we welcome all the family or family friends or even village locals!
