Fundraising at Busy Kids
Busy Kids runs many activities throughout the year to raise money for improved equipment or facilities. Keep an eye on our What’s On page to see our latest activities.
In the meantime here are some of the ways you can help on a regular basis:
Who doesn’t enjoy a spot of retail therapy? And thanks to the internet you can indulge your hobby at a time that’s convenient to you without leaving your armchair!
Now Busy Kids has partnered with easyfundraising.org.uk to take advantage of your shopping. Every time you make a qualifying purchase at one of hundreds of qualifying online shops such as Tesco, Amazon, Next and more, Busy Kids will receive a cashback donation which soon mounts up into a tidy sum. The more you spend, the more we raise!
To find out more simply go here, register, and log in to your favourite shops via the easyfundraising every time you make a purchase. It’s easy and doesn’t cost you a penny, but gains us several.
Regular fundraising help
We can always use any extra money raised and it’s always better if we don’t ask people to put their hands in their pockets to do it! We have a couple of ways that you can help us raise money that requires very little time and none of your own cash:
- Do you work for a company that has a £ for £ scheme where they offer to match anything that your chosen charity raises? If so please could you speak to them and/or Judi
- We also provide tea, coffee and cakes for the Bromham Walkers on the second Thursday of every month. Many thanks to everyone who has made a cake (this does require a bit of your money!), they always go down very well. Since we opened the baby room, we no longer host the coffee and cakes at Busy Kids, but it still happens in St Nicholas parish church on the High Street thanks to the efforts of Mary Barker. There is a rota for each month on the notice board in Busy Kids’ reception area if you want to volunteer. We usually raise about £400 a year from this one activity.
- We collect used ink cartridges for recycling – there is a box in reception.
