Greenway Nursery Open Day

18th September 2021

Fundraising is key to ensuring FSN continue to support local children and families so why not get involved and join the volunteer team at FSN to help make a difference in our community
 
What do fundraising volunteers do at FSN?
There are a wide range of roles from helping with the annual golf day, open gardens, quiz nights, shop collections, coffee mornings, lunches and high teas to administration and promoting FSN within the community. Volunteers also run their own events for example, open gardens, coffee mornings, half-marathons, music evenings and art and environmental talks
 
Who is volunteering for?
Anyone who has free time to spare whether for a one off event or regular attendance, there is no minimum or maximum time, just what fits in with your own life. Every hour will help our Events Team fundraise for FSN.
 
Volunteering not for you?
There are other ways in which you can help!

    Comment from King's Church:

    'It has been a privilege to have Dragofnlies as our 'local charity of the year' 2018/19. It's been a pleasure to raise money for you through our Christmas, Easter and general events throughout the year. We hope this money will make a difference to Dragonflies and the children who benefit from such vital support'
     
    They raised £4,000. What a fantastic achievement.

"The Community Learning courses have been a valuable resource for our clients looking to improve their mental health and wellbeing, as well as providing insight to self-management/coping strategies to build resilience. Our clients have reported they have found them interesting, informative and easy to engage with due to the welcoming and supportive staff and informal setting."

I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

"I started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I started a Level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"

"Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!
“I have come along and attended various courses at FSN but also attended the computer and Health and Wellbeing drop ins. Coming here as made me in such a better place, everyone is so supportive! I feel so much more confident, I have found myself again. I love it here!"
