Why we need your support

basket-swing-etsThe Hollow Lane Club is committed to making our services accessible to all families, no matter what their financial situation.

Hollow Lane Club trustees are committed to keeping fees as low as possible for all children and families. Hollow Lane Club fundraises to reduce fees for all families. Current fundraising levels allow us to offer fees at 40 – 50% of the actual costs for each place attended on our clubs.

Hollow Lane Club charges the same amount for all places on our clubs, no matter if a child requires additional support or care (eg they require 2:1 care or additional medical support).

Hollow Lane Club works with families and the local authority to support finding appropriate sources of funding for families in need of financial support for respite care.

Our current funders

The clubs can only run with a large amount of subsidy. This comes from a range of grant providers, from small-scale family foundation charities to large nationally recognised organisations such as Children in Need and the Big Lottery Fund.
