Welcome to our fundraising page for the Horringer Pre-School Acorn Project.
We formally launched a £200,000 fund-raising campaign for a new building on Thursday, 27th April 2017. The current Pre-School building, which dates from 1996, was put together by local parents from a pre-fab kit in their spare time. It has worked well up to now, but was only ever intended to last ten years.
To kick off our campaign we began with Construction week. The children got involved with construction themed activities including making tactile pictures of dumper trucks pouring lentils and oats out of the back; reading story books about construction and turning their den into a site office. We even had a visit from a mini digger.

We are hoping to raise the money through various fundraising events and applying for funding from various bodies. If you would like to contribute financially in any way, please visit our Virgin Money Page www.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/horringerpreschoolacornproject
