Festivities were well underway at Brinds Well Day Nursery in Chelsfield as families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas Fayre, all whilst raising vital funds for charity.
Following 12 months of fundraising for The Trussell Trust food bank network, families and colleagues from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Hawstead Lane were delighted to end the year on a high with a further £1,500 contribution to the charity, generated from the event with attractions including card making and biscuit decorating.
During the event, families also had the opportunity to browse a variety of stalls, with gift ideas including handmade crochet toys and Christmas balloons, whilst children enjoyed writing Christmas letters to send to the North Pole, festive photo opportunities, a bake sale and an exciting opportunity to meet Santa Claus in the specially created grotto area.
Throughout the year, Brinds Well staff teams and families have taken part in countless fundraising ventures for the cause, from colleague skydives and dress up days to summer fetes and sponsored events, as well as holding regular collections of essential food and household items to donate to the Bromley Borough Foodbank to help local people in need.
Brinds Well Day Nursery Manager, Vanessa Watkins explained;
“Everyone had a magical day at the Christmas Fayre and we were blown away by the amount raised by our incredible nursery community. The Trussell Trust works tirelessly to provide support to people facing hardship and this donation will go a long way in helping them make a difference as the festive season approaches. We are so grateful for the kindness shown towards the cause, which also sets an amazing example to the children.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
