Saving Cromford Playgroup from closure

Cromford playgroup is a registered charity that runs as a small business, we are not a Derbyshire County Council School and therefore it is totally down to the setting to manage its finances; we are sad to say we are unfortunately in a situation where financially we are not breaking even at the moment due to the pandemic. 

Our usual fundraising events have had to be cancelled and this has also affected our income greatly. It would be with great sadness if, by no fault of our own, we had no option but to close and we are doing everything in our power so this is not the case. 

Therefore we have set up this go fund me in order to save Cromford Playgroup from closure. 

Here are some kind words from parents and the community:

 “playgroup is an essential resource for the village, it provides an excellent childcare facility to local families in a nurturing environment with fantastic qualified staff”. 

“Staff work extremely hard for the community creating events for families to participate” 

“I feel so strongly that playgroup plays an integral part of our community, not only for the children of cromford but for the parents and grandparents too”
