Pre-school’s got talent: raising funds for House

Forbes Pre-school is bringing families an end-of-year concert with a difference this year.

The kids will take the stage in Forbes Pre-school’s got talent next Thursday, November 23, 

The pre-school has this year chosen to use the event as a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House in Orange, where Forbes families of children having medical treatment can stay.

Pre-school director Amy Shine said the children had been working hard on the night’s production.

“We have a little way to go but we’re sure it will all come together on the night,” she said.

“It’s good to fundraise for such a good cause and help our local families.”

A sausage sizzle and drinks will be on sale on the concert night and Ms Shine asked families to come prepared to give generously.

Ms Shine said she had been impacted by the statistics provided by Ronald McDonald House, showing that Forbes families are amongst the highest users of the facility.

Thirty-seven Forbes families have spent 143 nights in the Ronald McDonald House accommodation in Orange since it opened in April 2015.

The House welcomes provides guests with all the comforts of home - kitchen, dining, laundry, bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, spaces for play and relaxation for teens and adults as well as a children’s play area, outdoor barbecue and play area.
