Fundraising

Panda Playgroup, Sticky Mitts and Tiny Tots is a charity run by a voluntary committee mainly made up of Panda parents and carers. We have many fundraising events and activities planned throughout the forthcoming year, such as the Toy and Baby equipment fair, annual professional photo shoot, Phoenix cards and many more.

Sometimes we fundraise for specific things like play equipment but much of our fundraising ventures are about securing the longer term future of Panda Playgroup, Sticky Mitts and Tiny Tots. Our income is dependent on the numbers of children who attend our sessions. At times though, the numbers of children in our area can be lower than at other times and this means our income reduces more than the associated costs. So we fundraise all year round, to ensure that we have sufficient funding, now and in the future, to carry on providing this quality and valued service at the heart of our community. 

We are always on the lookout for more volunteers so please consider joining in. We would always welcome your ideas and suggestions and you can do as much or as little as you like. We guarantee it will be fun and a good way to meet other parents and carers. If you’re interested in helping out please contact one of the committee or speak to one of the staff who will point you in the right direction.

Thank you for your support!
