We would like to get some formalised ‘wish list’ items this year for our fundraising so please let the Exec Team know if you have any good ideas.  You can contact us on scpspandc@gmail.com.  We are currently working on a sensory path and kitchen garden, but we can look at new ideas including mental health, sporting, educational aids, sustainability etc etc.  If you have any great ideas, please let us know and we will put a list together.  We can also apply for grants throughout the year if the project qualifies.
