October fundraising activities

Thursday, 17 November 2022

October was a busy month for Playgroup with two exciting fundraising events over the tattie holidays. As always, we have so many thank-yous to give to our amazing local community, so here we go with a review of the month...

Firstly, we had an absolutely spooktacular afternoon at our Halloween disco! Thank you to everyone who came along and to those who volunteered to help - we raised over £500 for Playgroup. As well as that we wanted to give a big THANK YOU to Torphins Pharmacy for running the ghost hunt for us this year and to all of the fabulous village businesses who allowed us to pop up ghostly letters!! We raised over £200 which is just amazing!

On Halloween itself, we hosted a special messy play event at the Playgroup for 0-5 year olds which was fully booked, full of children enjoying all kinds of fun, slimy, squidgey, spooky activities. Thanks to the staff team and to everyone who came along!

In the holidays local photographer, Simone Smith, lent her support, running family photo sessions, with a portion of her fees donated to Playgroup - this activity raised over £100 for Playgroup, and resulted in some beautiful photos too! Thanks Simone!

The money we raise funds every aspect of Playgroup and after the last few years, it's more important than ever. From new resources to our fabulous staff team, everything is funded from these activities and the money they raise, so thanks again to everyone who took part, came to the events, volunteered, and donated money.

Now that Halloween is finished, we're allowed to get excited about Christmas! Our next event is on 17th December - Santa's Grotto! Follow our Facebook page for the most up to date details on events.
