Loirston Nursery is Fundraising for Playground Equipment to Extend our Outdoor Play.

Posted by loirstonconnect on October 8, 2014

Can you or the company you work for help?


We are looking for:-

  • Prizes for a raffle
  • Funds
  • Helpers with ideas for raising money
  • Information about sponsors or grants from companies to help us extend our outdoor play equipment.


We have already raised over £1000 approx. plus a sponsored nursery walk toward our goal but this equipment is expensive and we need around £7000 to achieve this for our children. If you can help in any way contact the school or pop into the nursery.


See below for an example of what we might want to get for the children although the exact design has not been finalised as yet.
