News & Fundraising Events


As a registered charity, Acorn Playgroup and Pre-School nursery is very reliant on fundraising to provide new equipment and resources for the children.  Our fundraising events are led by our Team of Trustees.  Here are some ways you can get involved:mmunity voluntary aided nursery preschool welwyn

  • Join us or help at one of our upcoming events

  • Earn us commission by doing your shopping through easyfundraising - without it costing you an extra penny!

  • Buy your crafts from Yellow Moon, quoting Acorn's Source Code ACO6856

  • Hand in any vouchers or tokens (e.g. Nestle book tokens; Sainsbury's Active Kids)

  • We also gratefully welcome donations of everyday items such as hand wipes and tissues as well as crafts materials and any good quality toys

  • Last but not at all least, if you have a great idea for a fundraising event, do let us know
