We have come a long way since we started in 1985 but still rely on the goodwill of the community to survive. As we work in partnership with Moray Council, we receive help from them towards our running costs for children in receipt of a funded nursery place, but we also very much continue to depend on grants and donations.
We currently require approximately £130,000 per year to operate smoothly, and rely heavily on the support of the general public, local businesses, the RAF community and our many "Friends of Ladybird".
Children under 3 years age are not usually eligible for statutory help towards funded nursery places. The Big Lottery and The Cattenach Trust are currently helping towards staffing for this age group with grants they have awarded.
If you would like to make a donation please make cheques payable to:
"The Ladybird Development Group"
and forward to the nursery, or please ask if you would prefer to make a payment by BACS. Cash donations can be handed into the nursery.
Alternatively you can visit our Just Giving page to make a donation or organise your own fund-raiser for us. To visit our Just Giving page, please click the image below. Please remember to tick the Gift Aid box if you are a UK tax-payer, which makes your gift more valuable.
