£115raised of £6,000 target by 8 supporters

Weʼre raising £6,000 to help fund a retractable outdoor shelter to increase the space for children to learn and play at Donkey Field Pre-School.

Crawley Down, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

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.


The Donkey Field Pre-School is a registered charity (1035097).

The pre-school first opened its doors in Crawley Down Village on 26th February 2001 to fulfil a need within the local community for early years learning provision for under 5s.

The pre-school expanded rapidly and over the years has had consistent demand for places. More recently, the pre-school has been inundated with additional applications.

It is now vital that the Pre-School makes improvements to accommodate these children.

This Autumn we have launched a project to build a solid wood structure with retractable roof to be fixed to the exterior to the school building.

Adding this space will not only increase the area in which the children can explore, but will also house a sensory garden and make it possible for the children to access outdoor space regardless of the weather.

Sadly, some children who attend Donkey Field don’t benefit from outdoor play at home and this project will ensure they are given the opportunities equal to those who attend from a more fortunate background.

After tendering the project to a selection of builders in the local area we have been able to gain an estimate of costs. To build the frame, in addition to the fitting of the retractable roof, the overall cost is expected to be around £6,000.

For a charity that fundraises continually year round purely to fund operating expenses, this project represents a big investment. Without a dedicated fundraising effort, the funds would have to come directly out of the funds earmarked for learning and development of the children, or may not be possible at all.

In addition to fundraising we would welcome any offers from local builders to help with the project.

The proposed structure and shade can be seen on the company website

Thank you in advance for any donations that you can make towards this great cause.
