Burley Sponsored Walk

Our setting in Burley in Wharefdale has been approached by the Burley in Wharfedale Playground Project

A mum of three and a Parish Councillor in the village , Rachel has been going to the children’s play area in the village for the last 35 years and in that time, little has changed.  The equipment is tired and dated and it’s no longer a magnet to the families that live in the village, and it’s not a good example of a village play area, which should be bustling particularly in good weather.

The playground project aim is to raise awareness of the current condition and to fund-raise in an effort to replace the old with a bright new space

Lucy our Burley Manager jumped at the chance to become involved and is organising a sponsored walk to help raise funds

The walk will be held on Saturday 9th April starting from our nursery at 10am

We will be inviting all our families to take part and more information and sponsor forms can be found  in the office at Burley

If anyone has other fundraising ideas please do  contact us

Charity Donations

Before Christmas Cliffe House teamed up with the Dandy Art House project which all our  children took part in to design  their very own Christmas card

Each child drew or painted  a Christmas theme which was then made into a Christmas  card

A sample card was made and sent home to their families who then had the opportunity to buy direct from The Dandy Art House

As a thank you for purchasing the cards Dandy Art House gave us percentage of the profits which we in turn donated to our chosen charities

Burley In Wharfedale £39.05 – Love Hope Trust

Featherbank £36.60 – Candlelighters

Bramhope  £20.00  - Barth Syndrome Trust

Baildon £34.70 – Love Hope Trust

Horsforth £26.95 – Macmillan


Thank You to all our parents who helped us raise this money we do appreciate it  x x x


Christmas Holidays

As our setting in  Bramhope is term time only they close on Friday 18th for the Christmas break
