Auden Place Community Nursery is a registered charity and as such, fundraising is really important to us. If you shop online, you can log on through Easyfundraising to raise money for us when shopping at over 3,000 websites, at no extra cost for you! Remember you need to go through Easyfundraising each time you order to generate the donation. Why not download the Donation Reminder so you never forget?
Throughout the year we also hold regular fundraising events to contribute to the income of the nursery. You can see the 2018 calendar of fundraising and parent events here. Have a look at the gallery of some past events here.
Our annual summer fête is a lovely moment for children, parents and staff to come together and enjoy dressing up, games and a barbecue. We invite parents and children past and present, making an annual reunion for the extended Auden Place family, as well as those parents on our current waiting list.
At the Christmas party, the children can meet Santa, and all funds raised from the sale of gift bags are used to pay for our annual passes to London Zoo. Throughout the year we also have dress-up or pyjama days and also sell Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day gift bags with crafts and artwork made by the children.
We ask all parents to please support us and help where they can, whether donating time to help at an event, or through buying calenders for family Christmas presents.
In the 2016/17 financial year we raised £8,000, which helped to cover the cost of extra-curricular activities, so that they can be offered free to all children. Our fundraising events help to make Auden Place financially secure and allow us to keep our fees as low as possible.
