Fundraising - Get Involved!
At Little Thetford Acorns, sessional fees only cover day-to-day running costs. That means we need the Fundraising team to raise the extra money we need throughout the year to pay for things like:
Replacing toys and games
Arts and crafts resources
Subsidising school trips
As a not-for-profit charity, all money raised goes straight back into the setting to be used for things that will be enjoyed by all the children.
How you can help:
Join the Fundraising Team – we always need new members and love new ideas so contact us via email or our Facebook page if you want to get involved!
Support our events – come along to our events, enter those colouring competitions, buy those Christmas cards/puddings/tea towels/craft packs/raffle tickets or donate your time – every little bit helps!
Raise funds while you shop online:
Register with www.easyfundraising.org.uk and choose Little Thetford Acorns as your chosen organisation. Then when you want to shop with any of the 600+ online retailers, visit the EasyFundRaising website and shop via the link from their website. We then get a small donation via the retailer without affecting your own purchase in any way. Easy!
