Marathon achievement for charity at Windermere

There was cause for celebration at Windermere Day Nursery in Kettering as a devoted member of the team completed the Rutland Spring Half Marathon to raise funds for charity.

Completing the gruelling 13.1-mile route around Rutland Water, Sian Kenny; Nursery Practitioner at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ setting on Haweswater Road, was delighted to finish the course in a total of two hours and 19 minutes, raising £340.00 for the British Heart Foundation, with donations still incoming from supporters to help fund vital research.

Sian is no stranger to a fundraising challenge, having previously taken part in initiatives including a climb up Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, with her nursery colleagues to help raise money for The Trussell Trust food bank network, as well as countless dress up days and sponsored events to support worthy causes at Childbase.

Windermere Day Nursery Team Leader, Hayley Kernick explained;

“We are so proud of Sian, who is such a selfless individual and an inspiration to us all. She constantly goes above and beyond to support our charities and is a fantastic role model to the children and example of kindness. Raising money for worthy causes is hugely important to us as a nursery and we are so grateful to have such committed colleagues and families, who are always so enthusiastic to give back, even in times of hardship.”

Windermere Day Nursery have adopted British Heart Foundation for a year-long fundraising and awareness drive.
