Where your money goes…
We know £3.50 seems steep when there’s so much free stuff happening for kids in Hackney. We rely heavily on this income each week and also have to fundraise to cover costs and maintain a contingency budget.
Because we’re a drop-in, we can never predict how many people we’ll have each week, so some weeks we don’t cover costs.
Weekly running costs break down like this: hall hire@£65 + paid helper@£30 + refreshments@£5 = £100
On top of these, there’s insurance, art and craft materials, cleaning stuff and inevitable wear and tear, which means we need to replace toys and equipment every now and again too. It all adds up!
