Heart Month at Sandfield

Sandfield Day Nursery in Headington have been embracing the British Heart Foundation’s ‘Go Red for Heart Month’ with a series of exciting initiatives to raise vital funds for the cause.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Sandfield Road, children and colleagues dressed up for a special wear red day, where they showed off their brightest outfits, whilst families enjoyed a raffle with the top prize of a Valentine’s hamper, raising a grand total of £280.00 for the charity which will help fund essential research into congenital heart disease.

During the festivities, pre-schoolers were delighted to showcase their creativity with a series of themed crafting activities, from making greeting cards and artwork for their loved ones, to helping talented Nursery Chefs make red heart cookies to give to their parents as gifts.

Sandfield Regional Charity Ambassador, April Spencer explained;

“We aim to make a real difference when it comes to supporting worthy causes and this one is very close to our hearts. Every day around 13 babies in the UK are diagnosed with congenital heart disease. With this charity we have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for these babies and the support available to their families. We are so grateful for the backing of our incredible nursery community in helping the incredible causes we choose.”

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