Generous football fans and families from Sandfield Day Nursery in Headington helped to raise a grand total of £600 as part of the setting’s final fundraiser for charity ‘Bliss’.
Following a year of fundraising for the worthy cause, which supports babies born premature or sick, the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Sandfield Road were delighted to auction off a special Chelsea FC shirt for the charity, signed by the 2022/23 team of players and kindly donated by a nursery parent who works for the football club as an executive.
The highest bidder paid £600.00 for the rare piece of memorabilia, which was added to the £160,000 plus total raised by Childbase Partnership nurseries for Bliss throughout 2022. For Sandfield, fundraising initiatives have included colleagues spending the night ‘sleeping rough’ underneath the stars and a climb up Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.
Sandfield Day Nursery Business Administrator, Becci Worth explained;
“We have had a fantastic year of fundraising for Bliss with the support of our incredible nursery families. We are so delighted to be ending the year with this final contribution to help give more babies the best possible start in life.”
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.
