Generous parents and practitioners from Nature Trails Day Nursery in Cawston have made a donation of Easter eggs to the Rugby Foodbank to help local people who need it most.
Following a record-rise in demand for items at food banks due to the cost-of-living crisis, families from the award-winning setting on Coventry Road made the contribution of 47 chocolate eggs to help ensure every child would receive a treat this Easter.
Having pledged a year-long fundraising and donation drive for The Trussell Trust, parents and colleagues from the setting have been taking part in collections of essential food and household items to keep the charity well stocked in supplies to serve the community.
Nature Trails Day Nursery Charity Representative, Louise Gulliver explained;
“We are delighted to be making our second donation of Easter eggs and are so grateful to our nursery families for the generosity they show. We know that lots of people are struggling to make ends meet at the moment and we are devoted to easing some of this hardship.”
The Rugby Foodbank are urgently appealing for cream crackers, tinned meat, packet rice, strong carrier bags, squash, tinned tomatoes, custard and pasta sauce.
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.
