We are all volunteers and the group gets no grants or funding so we rely on donations, memberships and fundraisers to raise the money we need to keep the group running. LLLGB is entirely non-profit so any money raised will go directly to support mums in our area.

As well as having a lovely play park at the venue we will also have:

Home made lemonade | Cakes and bakes | A raffle (see wall post for a list of prizes)

Some outdoor toys

Unfortunately we aren’t able to provide sandwiches for everyone but please feel free to bring your own.

We’d like to suggest a donation of £5 per family. That will give you as much free cake and lemonade as you like and a free ticket for the raffle. Additional raffle strips can be bought at £1 each.

Thank you for your support!
