Summer Fayre £2751 for charity
The nursery’s summer fayre in May was in aid of ‘Children with Cancer & Meningitis Uk’. Special thanks to all those who attended and helped us raise so much money for two important charities. And thanks to Emma and Wendy who organised this years charity fund event.
Emma and Wendy decided to raise money for these two worthwhile charities as these conditions are very close to nursery staff hearts.
We had a fantastic turn out on the day despite the awful weather and we raised an amazing £2751.89
We would like to thank all the contributors to our Grand Raffle including Lenore Care, Hotel Indigo & Slayley Hall.
We had entertainment from Captain Jacks Parties and also Dizzy’s Parties who saved the day at very short notice.
Emma and Wendy from the nursery commented saying “We are extremely grateful to all of our staff for giving up their own personal time and to all the local business for donating prizes to our grand raffle. The day was a total success for all involved. Children and families got to look at a number of interesting stalls, games, refreshments, face painting we hope to continue our success in the coming years and hold annual fairs for a variety of different charities.”
Children with Cancer said “ Many thanks to everyone at Children's Choice Nursery for your wonderful donation of £1278.53 towards the vital work of Children with Cancer UK. We are very grateful for your kind support.”
Meningitis UK also had some kind words – “ The funds raised from their Spring Fayre are equivalent to over 50 hours of cutting-edge research into life-saving vaccines for all kinds of meningitis. Thanks to organisations such as Children’s Choice, scientists are making great progress and vaccines are already saving lives – but there is still urgent work to do until everyone is safe from meningitis. We were really pleased to be able to attend on the day and we were touched be the generosity of all who took part and attended on the day it was a great success!”
