Weʼre raising £5,000 to run FREE groups for 5-8 year olds living in the city centre of Edinburgh.
- Edinburgh, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We run free groups for children to play, to learn, to build confidence and to try new things. We work with many children who are living in overcrowded homes, who are experiencing food poverty, and who live in areas of deprivation. We already run a really successful free provision for them, and our current funding has come to an end.
We asked children what they wanted from us and they told us
• A chance to make new friends
• A chance to learn about new things
• Somewhere that is safe
• A chance to volunteer with younger groups
• Somewhere to play
• Somewhere to play outside
• Somewhere to eat
Help us to continue to offer this great service for children to be, belong and become.
