Supporting the playgroup
Each year a number of our supporters take on challenges or run events to raise money for the playgroup.
A number of these are featured in the Fundraising newsletters.
Examples from one newsletter include an 874 mile sponsored cycle ride from Land's End to John O'Groats, by Phoebe and Simon Fox, raising over £4000. Donations from a MOP parent's business, High Wycombe Cricket Club, Pub in the Park, MRIB, a grant from Goldman Sachs Gives Charity, White Stuff in Marlow, the Masonic organisation, Marlow Thames Rotary, Marlow Santa Fun Run, and many individuals.
Cookham Regatta invited MOP to set up a stall, which helped us spread the word as well as raise some funds.
If you are thinking of holding an event with your friends and family to raise money for the playgroup, we can provide collection tins and promotional literature and give advice on setting up on-line giving sites for anyone brave enough to take on a challenge for MOPs.
Information and to Buy ticket(s) - takes you to our page on the Buckinghamshire Lottery website, from where you can buy ticket(s) online. 50% of the ticket price goes to your selected cause and 10% goes to other causes. The remaining 40% funds the prizes, Admin and VAT.
If you are interested in contributing in any way to the running of the playgroup, we welcome parents to join our Voluntary Management Committee who meet every 6 weeks here at the Scout Hall at the end of the session. Please speak to me (Jane) if you would like more information.
