Here at Gingerbread Corner we are always trying to raise money for something, especially in todays hard economic climate. Whether it be for new Minibuses, Trips and Activities for our children or for our Sensory room, a specially designed room to stimulate the senses of children with disabilities. Even though we have a brand new building and are now an official Croydon Children's Centre, we are still and foremost a non-profit children's charity.


Over the last thirty four years our Staff, Parents, Children and Supporters have helped us raise thousands of pounds by hosting or partaking in sponsored events, donating gifts and money or organising events and fundraising days. Some have even helped us paint rooms or improve our adventure playground.


Now more than ever we are asking for YOUR help, if there is anyway you can help us not only raise money but save money too, eg donating items that we need to save us buying them, then please get in touch.


We would like to thank everyone who has ever helped us over the years and all those who continue to support us, but as i'm sure you are aware, fund raising never ends.


Thank you!



Gift Aid and Standing Orders

This coming financial year we are having to reduce costs and increase income to keep Gingerbread Corner going and providing much needed services for our local community and many low income and disadvantaged families.


You can help us to do this by making a donation to Gingerbread Corner, monthly, quarterly or even annually. If you are a tax payer then Gift Aid allows Gingerbread Corner to claim back the tax on any donation you make at a rate of 28%.


For example: A monthly donation of £5 will increase our income by £76.80 over a year and a quarterly donation of £20, will increase our income by £102.40 over a year.


To help, please print and return this standing order form and gift aid declaration for the amount of your choice to:
