This is the group’s only regular fund-raising event – an annual opportunity for parents to make a contribution to the group’s success by helping to raise funds for our programme of activities. Over the first weekend in January, we run a collection and disposal/recycling service for Christmas trees in our area. We ask all parents to help in whatever way they can, whether it is advance publicity, admin, and organisation or spending one weekend morning or afternoon out on the as a driver, navigator or simply lugging trees.
Anyone who has taken part will know it can be hard work (although the exercise is always welcome after the excesses of Christmas!) but also good fun with a great sense of teamwork and shared achievement.
