This could be their normal clothes, bright colours, their favourite dressing up, superhero, pyjamas - whatever makes them happy!

Here is the link to the just giving page so that you can make donations and a link with more information to how any money you donate will be spent.

Lanterns Nursery School



Friends Of Lanterns


First of all thank you to all the families who joined us for Garden time and Farm day over half term we were so lucky with the weather.


We have two asks to help us support the Nursery School


Firstly “Save the fish!!”


We have a £1,000 per annum bill to keep the aquarium in reception in good order. This is a large amount of money out of a continually decreasing school budget .

Children love the fish and it is often a way to encourage them into the building and they will remember the fish at Lanterns for years to come.

So…how about stepping up to sponsor a fish? The children can chose the fish they wish to sponsor and even give t a name .

Any donation will be gratefully received .You can transfer the money directly into the Friends of Lanterns account.(details from reception )or use Lanterns Local Giving and use the Donate button. Thank you


Xmas Raffle

I am looking for a parent or two to set up a Family Friendly Raffle for Christmas to be part of our Xmas Fair on the 8th December. Last year we raised over £300 on the raffle which included Panto tickets, soft play entry, massage and many more.  We like this sort of raffle and in times of Covid it is better than a raffle of items .

If you feel you can help with this please contact Kathy East on 07928050948 or leave a message with reception.

If you have any stall ideas for the Fair please let me know

Thanks as always for all your generosity !


Best Wishes

Kathy East
