Fundraising at First Step

Money raised through fundraising helps to enhance the services that we provide.  Our Fundraising Team meets on a monthly basis to share new ideas and plan future events.  The team is made up of dedicated volunteers who work hard at raising funds for the project.
The team's recent events include -
Easter Extravaganza
Bake Sales
Pamper Evening
Race Night
Cricket Fun Day
Bags 2 School Clothing Collections
Christmas Wrapping at Ocean Terminal
And lots more....
A playroom parent and her friend organised an 80's and 90's Party Night which was also a huge success - and a great night out for everyone!

Businesses and Organisations
The support of local businesses and organisations is really important to our fundraising efforts.  This comes in the form of donating money, time or people - or all three!  If you would like to find out more about how you could help please get in touch.  Recent examples of this include Tesco and Pinkie Mains Farm Shop who supported our Big Breakfast Event, a cash donation from RS MCCOLLS and Scottish Gas Networks providing teams of workers to revamp our garden and paint some rooms.




The Fundraising Group put on a fantastic event at the Town Hall at the start of the summer.  There was baking, face painting, balloons,. raffle and tombola - and lots more!  Following the success of this event the group are looking at organising a Christmas event here - watch this space!
