Ladybird Playgroup held many events in 2019 - Face-painting at Daffodil Weekend, Sawston Fun-run & HeathFest along side Ladybirds 25th Anniversary Celebrations and Sharon's 20th Year the previous year. Future events include a biscuit stall at Newton Fireworks, Children's Christmas Disco and other fundraising events.  We rely heavily on volunteers to help with these events and they raise money which directly benefits the children with new play equipment and craft supplies, please look out for more information on our Newsletters and Community Facebook page.

We will be organising handmade Christmas Cards by the children, and often have a a Photo Session with local Photographer - Anna Marriage, all within the hours of Playgroup


Treasure Hunt

Each October, we fundraise for new toys via a sponsored Autumn Treasure Hunt. The children are asked which toys they would like to get with the money raised - they really enjoy thinking about that and voting on it!
