Fundraising at Little Fishes (Registered Charity Number 1070343)
Little Fishes is registered with the Charities Commission which means we have charitable status and are non-profit making.
We do have and need an extensive fundraising programme to be able to fund additional members of staff. This allows a higher staff to pupil ratio and means more staff to care for the children and support their learning, giving them more opportunities for one to one attention. We also are able to provide more play equipment especially for outside, provide provisions such as tissues/toilet provisions, cooking ingredients, and out of the ordinary items for specialised crafts, outings and entertainment at seasonal parties at no extra cost to the parents.
The Committee also has the responsibility to raise funds for the Preschool and they do this through a number of Fundraising activities. Please ask for further details.
Little Fishes is registered on the Easyfundraising website. It’s a great way to raise money for the Preschool while shopping on-line. You set up an account and shop online with over 3,300 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend to Little Fishes. Retailers include John Lewis, Clarks, Asos, Next, Amazon, M&S, Debenhams, Argos and even Ebay.
It is really simple to register yourself and then you just need to remember to visit the Easyfundraising site when you shop online. There’s no catch. It’s such a simple way to raise much needed funds.
Or go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and search for Little Fishes Pre School Maidenhead.
Gift Aid increases the value of your donations and means charities can benefit even more at no extra cost to you. If you’re a UK taxpayer, add Gift Aid whenever you make a donation and Little Fishes can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – that’s a whopping 25p for every £1 you give. Higher rate tax payers can claim additional tax benefits for donations they make to charity, which you can keep or pass on to any charitable organisation. Simply indicate how much you have donated when completing your tax self-assessment form.
Please support Little Fishes by this completing the gift aid form.
We appreciate that we ask a lot of our parents and carers with regards to fundraising and supporting the Preschool but Little Fishes is very special as you will see and we want your child to have the best start in their education. You’ll be surprised what we can achieve together!
