Devonshire colleagues take on British Heart Foundation 10k

Devonshire 10K BHF

A team from Devonshire Day Nursery in Chiswick showcased their dedication to making a difference by taking part in the British Heart Foundation 10k to raise vital funds for the cause.

Taking to Kew Gardens over the weekend, colleagues Helena Fernandez-Cuervo, Anna Ball and Ewa from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bennett Street were delighted to finish the race, raising a total of £380.00 for the charity, with donations still incoming from generous supporters, which will help fund important research into congenital heart disease.

Having both lost immediate family members to heart disease, Anna and Ewa were determined to take action and honour the memory of their loved ones, whilst Helena was keen to support her friends and challenge herself during the 6.2 mile fundraiser.

Devonshire Day Nursery Manager, Emmy Avery explained;

“We are incredibly proud of Helena, Anna and Ewa for taking on this challenge. It is truly inspiring to see our team come together and push themselves for the benefit of others. Their commitment to supporting research into heart disease is a true testament to the strong sense of compassion and community that exists within our nursery.”

Devonshire Day Nursery have adopted the British Heart Foundation for a year-long fundraising and awareness drive.
