Fundraising

We are a parent run registered charity and as such, fundraising is vital to the continued success of Early Learners and Westies!

You can support us throughout the year from suggesting ways in which we can fundraise, offering to help/run a fundraiser or making a donation to one of our current fundraisers. We’d love you to get involved!
