Edwalton raise over £450 for charity during Heart Month

Edwalton Day Nursery in Nottingham have been embracing the British Heart Foundation’s ‘Go Red for Heart Month’ with a series of exciting initiatives to raise money for the cause.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Melton Road, parents were delighted to join their children for a special Valentine’s themed workshop, where groups enjoyed exploring different crafting stations set up throughout the room, with exciting activities including card making, sensory play, collage creating and ornament decorating.

As part of the festivities, Charity Representative; Natasha Maan, organised a bake sale which saw talented colleagues rally to produce their best homemade bakes, from brownies and fudge to cookies and marshmallow sticks, which were specially packaged and sold, raising a total of £455.55 for the British Heart Foundation to fund congenital research.

Edwalton Day Nursery Quality Manager, Laura Pickford explained;

“Our team have worked so hard throughout Heart Month to create fundraising opportunities for everyone to enjoy. We have been blown away by the amount raised and the generosity shown by our nursery families, who set an amazing example of kindness to the children. The British Heart Foundation is such an important charity, and we are so pleased to be supporting them this year.” 

Edwalton has adopted the British Heart Foundation for a year-long fundraising and awareness drive. Heart Month is taking place throughout February 2024.
