Raise money for Ladybirds through your online shopping

Did you know you could raise money for Ladybirds through your online shopping?

Retailers such as Boots, Next, Tesco, John Lewis, Amazon, M&S and more all donate money to charity groups when you shop through the Easy Fundraising Organisation.

All you need to do is either register online or download the app (App store & Google Play store). To choose our Ladybirds type in Histon and scroll down to Ladybirds play and toddler group. That’s it, shop away until your hearts content.

Over the last few years over £400 has been raised just by shopping through the Easy Fundraising Organisation. This is such a valuable contribution to Ladybirds and helps us maintain low subscription fees and invest in toys and crafts for the children.

We really do appreciate everyone’s help and support, and this is a great way to raise money through shopping we already do.


New Year’s Eve Party is a great success!

For the second year running Ladybirds put on an early New Years Eve party where a wonderful balloon net and confetti canons rang in the new year, after two hours of non-stop fun and entertainment.

It’s hard to believe a year had gone by since the last party, yet there we were on New Years Eve hanging up decorations, fairy lights and ensuring everything was set for the disco and crafts, not forgetting the tombola and the ever popular glitter tattoos and face-painting! There were a few new additions this year as well, not only were we partying for longer than last year but we also had a food truck ensuring our guests didn’t go hungry with Pull me Cherie and brilliant balloon modelling and magic show from Bubbly Circus.

And it was all so worth it! Not only did everyone have fun (we hope!) but we also raised a fantastic £1, 188.93 for the playgroup. This is such a wonderful amount of money and we are truly appreciative of everyone who came and supported the event, through volunteering on the day, to the team planning for months beforehand, the local businesses helping sell tickets and donating prizes for the tombola and to all our guests for buying tickets and partying with us!

We will use some of the money raised to help subsidise our fees so we can continue to be accessible to lots of families. As for the rest, we have some ideas and once we have agreed on the various ways to spend the money wisely we’ll be back to let you know where your money has gone…but for now…save the date for next New Years Eve 😉
