Supporting Nell Bank
Nell Bank is able to offer fantastic experiences to many children of differing needs as a result of the generosity of individuals & organisations who continue to support the development of the site.
We are currently raising funds to build a new inclusive adventure play area which will allow all children, regardless of individual needs, to share in the fabulous learning opportunities we can provide in such a unique location. Work will begin on this facility soon and it should be in use for spring 2013.
Thank you to all those who have taken part in fund raising events on our behalf. We really appreciate any donations and many organisations choose to recognise their contribution with a plaque on the facility.
If you are interested in supporting Nell Bank we would love to hear from you so please get in touch.
