Over the last few months, we have been lucky enough to receive a number of fantastic donations and grant funding awards that will be of great benefit to the children during the 2016/2017 terms, and beyond:
We received a £1,654 grant from Shell UK Community Awards, to enable us to improve our technology resources and has allowed us to purchase 2 iPads, educational apps, four fun robots and a wireless printer, as well as fund a sessional worker who will help the children get the most out of these technologies.
Briggs Commercial Ltd have also very generously donated us an additional two iPads.
A member of Burntisland Fabrications Ltd‘s staff kindly nominated us to receive £600 from their charity fund, which we will use to help with day to day running costs of playgroup.
And last, but definitely not least, we received a fantastic amount from the Bank of Scotland Foundation which will cover our rental of the Toll Centre for the next year 1016/2017.
We’d like to say a huge Thank You to all of the organisations for their generosity, and also to the Grants Committee for all their hard work.
We do still need to continue to raise funds to help keep playgroup running, and so here are a few ways in which you can help:
1. Become a co-op member and choose us as your local charity to support;
2. Use easyfundraising to help fundraise whilst you shop online – it costs you nothing as the shops you buy from contribute a percentage of the sale to Playgroup;
3. Come along and join in our events – our next one is the Halloween Disco on the 29th October at the Toll Centre.
4. Come and find us at the Burntisland Bonfire and Fireworks display on Thursday 3rd November where we’ve very kindly been given a stand and will be selling some yummy homemade goodies to keep you going for the evening!
