"Mums up a Mountain" Print
Wednesday, 01 July 2015 09:28

"Mums up a Mountain" will take place (if the weather agrees with us) on Sunday 12 July 2015.  Staff, committee members and some kind volunteers will be scaling the heights of Snowdon (and coming down again - which is the worst bit)! 

We are collecting sponsors to undertake the challenge to add to the total already raised from the Midsummer event.  We need to raise more funds to ensure the building works go ahead to provide a covered play area, new disabled access and doors that fold back to allow children and staff to move freely from inside to outside where Holt Under Fives Playgroup & Toddlers provide their services to families throughout the community.
