Nowmads raise funds for Rumbletums

We were delighted to learn that NOWMADS raised £515.90 for Rumbletums at their recent production of Treasure Island. Shaking the buckets at half time for Rumbletums really brought out support for our fundraising.  Look out for the coffee cup on the window to see where we are up to now! Thanks to all at NOWMADS and to everyone supported Rumbletums.

As many of you know, we are currently in the process of raising funds to purchase the building by the end of May 2019. We understand the need to inform any potential new families that there may be a chance that Rumbletums will have to stop operating as a cafe and training project in the near future. However, the Trustees view this as an absolute last resort and are continuing to work hard with staff and friends of Rumbletums to ensure the continuation of the project.


We hope that you will be able to help us in our search for new trainees.

Many thanks,

Watnall Allotments Presents Cheque to Rumbletums

Andy Gilespie presenting cheque to Rumbletums

Although it was last August when Watnall Allottments Assocation hit the fundraising effort with a huge raffle, we didn’t get round to the big cheque presentation until the growing season was well and truly paused. Here’s Chairman Andy Gillespie presenting Regan with the cheque for £800. What a great result! Keen Gardeners Rock (Dig)!!

Recycle for Rumbletums

Rumbletums is proud to be a collecting point for the Terracycle/Walkers crisp packet recycling scheme. Not only that but we are also collecting biscuit and cake-bar wrappers too! Collection points are located in the side entance lobby with bins clearly marked. Details of waste that is not accepted is also on display. As the saying goes ‘where there’s muck there’s brass’ so happily for Rumbletums we can raise funds simply by collectiing what would otherwise be thrown away. Please join us by collecting and encouraging others to do so too. Perhaps you could set up a collection point at work or at school. Many thanks.

Crafted Kimberley every Saturday morning

Crafted KimberleyCrafted Kimberley is an Arts & Craft club for children from 3-12 years old (2 year olds also accepted). We run the club on a Saturday in two sessions 9:45-11am & 11:15-12:30pm!
We opened the club because basically we just enjoy crafting & making a mess. We love to see children laugh and having fun! It is a relaxed and happy atmosphere to encourage all children to develop their social, coordination, communication & fine motor skills! It also encourages speech and language. We have already recognised the confidence growing in the children that come to the club! We feel like it is becoming a family and we are all getting to know one another and building lasting friendship for years to come! If you feel like your child would enjoy this positive experience and have fun please drop me a message, we’re on Facebook and Instagram plus my phone number is on the flyer! We hope to see you there! Love all the team at Crafted Kimberley!
