Many don’t realise but Middleton Cheney Pre School is a charity organisation. This means we’re not allowed to make a large profit and have to carefully balance our running costs. Grant income and fees, predominantly go towards staff, building costs and for material costs such as stationery, glitter, stickers, toilet paper and so on (i.e. the things we need to keep running). Larger items and projects we need to fundraise for.
Over the past few years, we’ve been very fortunate and fundraising has allowed us to do many amazing things. This includes improving our outdoor areas creating amazing spaces for children to enjoy the outdoors throughout the year. We’ve also replaced dressing up clothes, bought a new dolls house and invested in the large interactive screen plus a new stereo system.
If you can help in any way, we’d love to hear from you. We’re hoping if everyone just does a little, it’ll lighten the load and also help build a bit of a pre school community where everyone gets a chance to help and become involved. More details will be sent home to parents as meetings get scheduled and events are coming up. The fundraising noticeboard in the foyer will also be kept up to date as will the Friends of Middleton Cheney facebook site. If you would like any further information, or are interested in joining the committee please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maxwells Estate Agents
We are delighted to announce that Maxwells Estate Agents & Vantage Mortgages, based in Banbury, are supporting us with our fundraising. You will see we have a new banner up by the entrance gate so do please take a look when you’re next dropping off. If someone quotes our preschool when using Maxwells / Vantage for the following services: selling a property, letting a rented property or mortgaging we will receive £200! A huge amount that will really help us! So do please spread the word to family and friends if they are thinking about moving or mortgaging!
Sponsors and Thank you's
We are so thankful for everyone who has supported us over the years. From parents, to local and national organisations and businesses, we are so very grateful. Here’s a link to those who have generously supported us over the past few years.
Easy Fundraising is an easy and simple way to raise extra funds for preschool. Its essentially a cashback site which is linked to the Preschool so every time you shop online at retailers such as Amazon, eBay and John Lewis the school gets a donation. You may also be asked to complete short surveys for cash incentives which all add up! To register go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and click on ‘Find a cause to support’ searching for Middleton Cheney Preschool. Join and then you are ready to go!
If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, please get in touch. Last year we received over £1,000 in match funding which was amazing. Many high street banks, supermarkets and large corporations offer this policy.
