Greengables Day Nursery Managers take on Shine Night Walk for charity
There was cause for celebration at Greengables Day Nursery in Owlsmoor as proud children and colleagues praised the achievements of their Management Team as they took on the ‘Shine Night Walk’ Half Marathon to raise vital funds for charity.
Starting in London’s Southwark Park and continuing throughout the city after hours, Nursery Manager, Lyndsey Burns and Deputy Manager, Julia Grant were delighted to complete the gruelling 13.1 mile course, raising a grand total of £800.00 between them for Cancer Research UK, with donations still incoming from generous supporters at the award-winning setting on Yeovil Road.
Greengables Day Nursery Manager, Lyndsey Burns explained;
“We are absolutely thrilled to be making this donation to Cancer Research UK after spending five hours doing the half marathon. It was wonderful to witness just how many people had come together in the hopes of making a difference, and we are hugely proud to be helping such a worthy cause.”
The initiative is the most recent fundraising activity for Greengables, 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.
