New stretch target

WOW. We're so happy that you all helped us reach our initial target in less than a week. We have added a stretch target of a further £500 and if we could meet it that would mean so much towards our fundraising targets for the next year. Even more so, to the children who will benefit from this the most, enabling them to have extra special equipment and toys and improving facilities. 

Come on let's make this a super magical Christmas. 

Oh and not to mention you've got a great chance of winning one of the excellent prizes. 


We invite you to help us raise vital funds for our wonderful pre-school this Christmas.

The draw will take place on Friday 18th December using a randomiser website: as we can't be together to do this in person.

Please make sure you are available to receive your prize on those dates.




Bradpole Pre-school provides early years care and education for children from ages 2-5 years. We are a non-profit making group with charitable status. Which is managed by a committee of volunteers and run by our wonderful staff. 

This year has been tough for EVERYONE. Our Pre-school remained open during the Covid-19 outbreak for those children who were identified as a child of a critical worker or a vulnerable child. The dedicated and caring staff put their worries aside to make everyday at pre-school in very uncertain times a fun and happy place to be for the children.

In these challenging times of social distancing our traditional fundraising activities have been postponed and we would like to invite you to support and help to raise vital funds for our amazing pre-school.

So please buy a few tickets and grab yourself the chance of winning some wonderful prizes supplied by our amazing community of local businesses, who we send out huge thanks to, always.

With huge thanks and gratitude to the local businesses and parents who've generously donated prizes to our Prize Draw. We know it's been a financially tough year for everyone but it really does make the world of difference to many little and big people alike.


Crowdfunder is waiving its platform fees for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis. That means we receive 100% of everything raised which is just fantastic. 

These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, and the response coming from communities across the country is strong.

When you go to checkout you will be asked to tip Crowdfunder for the services they provide, if you can spare a little more money we'd encourage you to do so, without them we'd find it very challenging to raise money without our traditional activities.
