Having spent the past two years raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK, dedicated colleagues from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans were delighted to embark on a new charity partnership with Bliss, for babies born premature or sick.
After raising a triumphant £3,234.29 for CRUK through initiatives such as fancy dress days, sponsored walks and bake sales, the team from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on York Road introduced the new year-long charity drive to supportive families with bespoke Bliss biscuits and information on the worthy cause.
To kick-start proceedings, Grasshoppers Business Administrator, Hannah Miller and Team Leader, Lauren Ringrose have been selflessly knitting hats for premature babies which will be donated to a local neonatal unit, whilst upcoming fundraisers have been planned to tie in with Valentines and Mother’s Day celebrations.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Manager, Jenny Pratt explained;
“Raising money for charity has always been incredibly important to us as a team and we are so grateful to our nursery families who are always generous in their support. Despite the past few years being tough all round, everyone has shown such kindness and consideration for those less fortunate, and we are now looking forward to seeing what we can achieve to help Bliss, who are such an important charity.”
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.
