Can you help General Gordon Kindy’s playground project? - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views

Wynnum’s much-loved General Gordon Kindergarten is asking the community to get behind its outdoor playground project by donating funds to help with construction costs.

“As a not-for-profit kindergarten, funding for large projects such as these relies entirely on fundraising, grants and donations from our local community,” explained Dale Garred, the kindy’s volunteer vice president.

“Our volunteer committee has worked tirelessly for the last two years to try and secure a major grant to fund our playground project; however, grants are highly competitive, and as yet, we have been unsuccessful. Frustratingly, it has been difficult to capture in words the spirit and magic of our kindy. We may be small, but we are mighty, and our impact unequivocally extends deep into our community.”

Dale says the kindy would be eternally grateful for any monetary donation community members can provide to support the playground redevelopment.

Donations can be made directly to the kindy or alternatively through the project’s Go-Fund-Me page.

Wynnum Manly Ward Councillor Cr Peter Cumming has generously kicked off the fundraising campaign with a donation of $1000.

Donations over $5000 will be commemorated by an engraved paver that will be laid surrounding the sandpit in the new play space.
