Knowle Green Active Week raises vital funds for food banks

Knowle Green Trussell Trot

Pre-schoolers from Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines were delighted to showcase their skills during a ‘Let’s Get Active Week’ at the setting, all whilst raising vital funds for charity.

From aerobics and an assault course to yoga and football, there was a different sporting focus each day for children at the award-winning day nursery on Knowle Green as they tried their hand at an array of physical activities, developing their motor skills, balance and co-ordination as they worked together to follow the rules and learn new techniques.

As part of the festivities, children were thrilled to take part in the Knowle Green ‘Trussell Trot’ in their local parkland, where they enjoyed walking, jogging and running laps of the field to raise money for The Trussell Trust. As a result of their efforts, pre-schoolers raised an incredible £419.00 for the cause, with donations still incoming from generous supporters.

Knowle Green Day Nursery Manager, Chanelle Weaver explained;

“The children have had the best week trying some new activities and were so proud to learn of all the money they had raised and the impact it will have on people in our community. We try and involve them in our fundraising as much as we can, and have been blown away by the generosity of our nursery families. It was a brilliant event and the perfect way to promote healthy lifestyles and the benefits, including increased concentration and self-esteem.”

Knowle Green Day Nursery have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising and donation drive.
