Fundraising news!

The charity was recently delighted to support Sage Pearce-Higgins who ran the Hereford RUN marathon and raised over £1343.50.  Not only did he do this but he also broke his record from last year by 3 minutes and won the race.  We would like to say a huge thanks to him and all those who kindly helped us smash our goal. This year we are fundraising to improve and redesign the outdoors play areas for the children that form such an important part of physical exploration and development.  We are very lucky to have outdoors space and hope that we can create even more exciting adventures for the children to explore. 
Fundraising is an important part of our organisation and this year several staff members are taking part in the Eastnor Castle mud run later in the year and we are holding some events over the next few months, including a Bingo fundraiser in Bishops Frome and a Classical Concert in the Autumn at Paunton Court.  Thanks to the staff and trustees who support and organise these events to help sustain the Charity.
