Douglas Park Nursery celebrates forty years with help from Get2Grips with Grants.
Douglas Park Nursery in Largs, recently hosted 'Party in the Park' - a celebration for the whole community. The day was to celebrate their past with a 40th Anniversary, and look to their future, after securing all-important funding - with Get2Grips with Grants help!
Facing closure Douglas Park Nursery came to Get2Grips with Grants when they were struggling financially. To keep their doors open they desperately needed to build up reserves of core funding. We quickly got to work and the funds started to come in. Breathing Space.
Next the committee looked at what they needed to support their important work: a whole host of teaching and support materials. Funds were secured and the new resources purchased: iPads, computer, furniture & equipment. Bright Future.
Now they had what they needed, we asked what they'd love. Douglas Park Nursery said they would love to celebrate their future and their past. With a 40th Anniversary looming Get2Grips with Grants went forth and secured further funds for their 'Party in the Park', a large free public party for the whole community to enjoy.
We were proud to join the celebration. The sun was shone, music was played, the crowds were gathered and the best part of all? Our clients, their volunteers and the children who attend the nursery, were all celebrating without a worry in sight.
We at Get2Grips with Grants are proud to announce our win of £500!
Our very own Louise Mccarron recently pitched at Entrepreneurial Sparks Acceler-8 day, and came out victorious with a cheque for £500.
