We collected loads of vouchers over the last few years and these have now been counted up and sent off. We have used the latest vouchers to get items for prizes and to sell at our fundraising events. In the past these vouchers have helped us get some vital equipment from balls and skittles to frying pans and tents. Every single voucher really does help and is greatly appreciated, so THANK YOU to everyone who brought vouchers in! Please look out for Active Kids 2018 and don’t forget to make sure you ask for those vouchers when they become available!
One of our focuses of our fundraising efforts since 2011 has been raising money to purchase our own mini-bus.
We use a mini-bus for most of our events. We usually hire these mini-buses from Islington Council, but these are starting to become more and more expensive and harder to get hold of. In some cases we have had to cancel events because the cost of the bus on top of everything else puts them beyond our reach. Having our own mini-bus will allow us to reduce the cost of camps and other activities in the long term. In the short term though it requires a very significant investment.
We have been doing all sorts of activities to raise money and we will update this page with details of how things are going. At present most of our current fundraising efforts have meant the funds are being diverted to other events and activities, the most recent being the camps that we go on as part of our yearly program. More activities are planned and if you have any ideas please do let us know!

From time to time we sell donated items or redundant equipment on eBay. These are a great way to pick up a bargain and help raise money for the group at the same time.
