Windmill Hill make charity advent calendar donation
Parents and practitioners from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon have made a donation of advent calendars to their local food bank to ensure no child goes without this Christmas.
After appealing to families at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park, colleagues were delighted to hand over a total of 64 chocolate advent calendars to the Swindon Food Collective, who then distributed them to families in the community who needed them most, along with emergency food parcels for the winter.
Over the past year, Windmill Hill have been fundraising for The Trussell Trust network, as well as holding regular collections for Swindon Food Collective, their local food bank, with generous donations of essential food and household items from both parents and staff.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Kayleigh Blaylock explained;
“During this festive season, it’s important to remember those who may be less fortunate. It brings us immense joy to be able to put a smile on the faces of those in need, especially the little ones who will be eagerly counting down the days until Christmas. We have had another fantastic year of fundraising and are so grateful for the support of our wonderful families.”
