Cedar Park Area Manager completes Shine Night charity walk
There was cause for celebration at Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford as proud children and colleagues praised the achievements of Area Manager, Emma Kemp as she took on the ‘Shine Night Walk’ Half Marathon on behalf of the setting.
Starting in London’s Southwark Park and continuing throughout the city after hours, Emma was delighted to complete the gruelling 13.1 mile course for charity, raising over £500.00 for Cancer Research UK, with donations still incoming from generous supporters at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Area Manager, Emma Kemp explained;
‘Raising money for charity and giving back has always been hugely important to us as a nursery and it was brilliant to share this experience with other colleagues from across Childbase who are just as passionate. I am thrilled to have completed the half marathon and making this donation to such a worthy cause is a real bonus.”
The initiative is the most recent fundraising activity for Cedar Park, who have also enjoyed dress up days, sponsored step challenges, virtual balloon races and more in their efforts to raise money for CRUK, who in December announced they had been forced to cut research funding by £45 million due to losses from the pandemic.
The nursery adopted Cancer Research UK in 2020 for a year-long fundraising drive, which has now been extended until the end of 2021.
