Sutton St James Playgroup New Building Fund

Sutton St James Playgroup operates from a small mobile unit which was bought second-hand many years ago. We recently had a survey carried out on the building and it indicated extensive repairs needed to be carried out on the roof, the floor is beginning to give way and the electrics and insulation need to be updated.

It would be devastating to the children, parents and staff if we were forced to close and the village itself would lose a vital part of its community.
We have taken the decision to now long-term fundraise for a new building at a cost of approximately £350,000.
We would be extremely grateful for any support you could give us to enable this valuable village amenity for the young children of the locality to continue. Please see the detail below of ways in which you can help us:


Previous fundraising have included Quiz Nights, Joules Evenings, Afternoon Teas, Bags 2School collections and a regular monthly Bingo in the Village Hall.

We always welcome new ideas and support to add to our Fund Raising Fund.
