NEW & EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 2022 – WING WALK
Oh yes, our Managing Director and Operations Director – Ashley and Ruth – are strapping themselves to the wing of a plane and soaring into the skies in the spring! These wonderful ladies are raising funds to help When You Wish Upon a Star Charity grant wishes to little ones who are amongst the bravest of us all. Please do donate any pennies you can spare via their Just Giving Page and do listen out for the screams in the sky over Essex later this year…
The big day will be at Headcorn Aerodrome on 21 of April 2022 at 12:00.
The charity was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White OBE who was so inspired by a seriously ill four year old with a dream to meet Mickey Mouse that she wanted to bring smiles to the faces of many more brave and courageous children. Its Wishes have the power to transform the lives of the children and families the charity works with and since 1990 they have proudly granted over 18000 Wishes across the UK. We hope to help them achieve even more Wishes so do please sponsor us for any amount you can spare. Every penny will go towards helping us to help them.
Myself, Ashley (Managing Director) and our Operations Director, Ruth, are petrified and excited in equal measures about this escapade so thank you in advance for your support! We really are going to be strapping ourselves to the wing of a plane and taking to the skies over Essex, and anyone who knows us will also know that our knees are already trembling. Kindly visit the Just Giving Page below or speak to the nursery managers to donate in person.

The Treehouse Club is currently supporting: Changing Pathways
This is a local domestic abuse charity working in South and South West Essex.
Changing Pathways (formerly known as Basildon Women’s Aid) has been an integral part of the local South Essex and Thurrock community for over forty years and over this time has supported thousands of women and their children to escape abusive relationships and move on with their lives.
Changing Pathways has a long history of service in its mission to support women experiencing domestic abuse. Over the years, the organisation has evolved as required, to remain aligned with the needs of the people we support.
Supporting Charities at our Settings
Big thank you for your parental participation in our Charity survey. Based on your preferences on local charities, we have decided to select the following two local charities for our 2021 fundraising events. The following two charities received your top votes.
Billericay & Wickford Charity 2021 | (SEWH) South Essex Wildlife Hospital
Dedicated to putting ‘life’ back into the ‘wild’, SEWH is a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and public advice charity.
Now a new Hospital and Education facilities have been built, and they are able to deal with a lot more casualties and orphaned wildlife. No sick, injured or orphaned animal is turned away, requiring that the hospital operates 7 days a week. Staffed by paid veterinary staff, a handful of dedicated volunteers and Sue Schwar herself, who often have to work in hazardous conditions, late at night and in adverse weather.

Brentwood & Ingrave Charity 2021 | Wildlives Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre
Wildlives will provide care and basic medical treatment for wildlife and ensure that a bird or animal gets veterinary treatment where required.
With all animals brought into the Centre, the ultimate aim will be release them back into the wild. In order to do this successfully, it is necessary to ensure that they achieve a very high level of fitness and mobility (far in excess of that which would be sufficient for a domestic pet). Furthermore, this must be done without ‘taming’ the animal. An animal with no fear of people will, sadly, not live very long in the wild.

At Treehouse Club, we believe it’s never too early to get children interested and involved in giving back and learning about the importance of giving. Children are capable of tremendous compassion, and with a little help and direction, kids can begin to make a big impact in their communities.
We look forward to supporting these worthwhile causes.
