  • Need

    Need

    We are trying to solve our gardens groundwork which in the winter can become un useable due to the weather as it turns the ground into a very slippery muddy mess.

    Solution

    We want to have a company do ground work such as turning the floor into colour sections of rubber wet pour flooring which will make the garden more accessible all year round.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To raise funds to pay for the groundwork

    Activities

    » Keep having fundraising events and applying for possible grants to pay for the project

  • Impact

    Impact

    We are hoping to see a rise in the children's development as they will thrive from a better learning enriched outdoor environment.
    We also hope that it will improve the appearance of the setting and help us to remain a sustainable business as we are a charity and hopefully this will encourage parents to choose us because of what we can provide.

    Risk

    Ensuring the charity can afford the pay out for the groundwork to be done. The risk has been dealt with by currently not committing to the work being done until the funds have been raised.
