Grasshoppers Summer Fete raises over £1000 for charity

Grasshoppers Summer Fete

The sun was shining for families and colleagues at Grasshoppers Day Nursery in Aylesbury as they gathered for their annual Summer Fete, all whilst raising vital funds for charity.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Wendover Road, children were delighted to immerse themselves in the fun and games on offer, with attractions including hook-a-duck, arts and crafts tables, soft play, face painting, photobooth and refreshments for all to enjoy. 

During the festivities, families had the opportunity to browse a variety of stalls and take part in a chocolate and bottle tombola, as well as a charity raffle for The Trussell Trust, with prizes including gift hampers, local restaurant vouchers, designer sets, toys and books, with proceeds from the day raising a grand total of £1295.00 for the worthy cause, which will help to provide emergency food parcels to people in the community who need it most. 

Grasshoppers Day Nursery Charity Representative, Sophie Cumming explained;

“The Summer Fete was an incredible success and we are over the moon to be able to make this donation to The Trussell Trust, which will make a real difference to local people. Our nursery colleagues and families always go above and beyond to make these events special and are always so generous with their time and kindness towards the causes we support.”

Grasshoppers have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising & donation drive.
