As a small registered charity we rely on revenue from fundraising to help us update our equipment and buy new resources for the children. We apply for grants whenever possible and have several fundraising schemes that we participate in, as well as organising our own events, but we are always looking for new fundraising ideas! If you have any suggestions please email them to We let parents and carers know about any specific fundraising events that are coming up, but there are some examples below of the events and schemes that we get involved in.

The Giving Machine

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be raising a free donation for Duxford Pre-school? There are nearly 1,500 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Next, Debenhams and eBay, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend each time you shop with them. It's really simple and doesn't cost you anything extra. All you have to do is sign up online via The Giving Machine - and start generating funds for free!

Quiz Night

Sometimes it’s not all about the children and parents and staff need an excuse to get together and have some fun! This year we held our ‘Quiz with a Difference’ night which was a huge success and very well supported by local businesses and parents. The profit made helped us update some of our equipment and buy new resources for the children. We are planning on putting on another quiz in 2021 so do keep a look out for it in the new year.
