Bamford Pre-school was thrilled to be recently chosen as the beneficiary of ‘Squiby’s Pick 6’. A Bamford-based social group, Squiby’s members voted to support pre-school this autumn donating £466 from their local lottery! Squiby (aka Paul Fathers) has been a fantastic supporter of pre-school and in the last year has helped fund extra educational activities and visits. The most recent donation will be partly used to fund a visit to Weston Park Museum – the children and staff are really looking forward to this!
Caroline Hunter, Pre-school Leader commented “As a small local charity donations from supporters like Squiby make a significant difference to pre-school. It helps to fund extra trips, activities and purchase equipment which are of huge benefit to our children, bringing learning to life. We are very grateful for all the support – both financial and in kind – we receive from the local community. We feel fortunate to have such supportive families and friends of pre-school. Thank you all!”
In recent months, Bamford Pre-school has been successful in grant applications to contribute to our new Forest School initiative. We would like to extend thanks to Carbolite, Alpkit Foundation and the Councillors Initiative Fund (in particular Councillor Charlotte Farrell for supporting our application). These funds have contributed to training and equipment for our new Forest School activities; an initiative we are really excited about.
