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)!!
Current Fundraising Total £21,795.22

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 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!

Firstly October / November were busy month for fundraising with several events fundraising for Rumbletums. Many of you will have joined in and enjoyed the fun. Many thanks to Mike Baldwin for a very entertaining evening talking about his experience building show gardens. Also thanks to Roots micro pub in Kimberley who hosted a very successful fundraising night. Trevor Rood scooped Santa’s little helper award this year at the parish hall, pulling out chairs for the fashion show which was packed to capacity raising funds for Rumbletums. Just to say a huge thank you to those who organised, catered, sold tickets and manned events. We really appreciate that you’ve given so much time and effort to the cause.
For those of you who don’t know Kimberley Jam is a charitable Trust which exists to raise funds for local causes. They have host regular events throughout the year through which they fundraise for local causes. They have kindly offered to promote Rumbletums in their fundraising events this year. You can follow their Facebook page to see what’s going on in Kimberley in the coming months.
Major Grant Applications
The other major development of our fundraising campaign has been the ongoing work of Jeff Buck applying for grants from larger donating bodies such as the National Lottery. He has been pleased by their positive response and we have successfully gone through to the second round with both the National Lottery and Power to Change awards. Many thanks to Jeff for his hard work achieving that.
