Knowle Green Day Nursery take on ‘The Big Pedal’ to raise funds for charity
Dedicated colleagues from Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines have been raising vital funds for charity with a 10 hour non-stop cycle as part of ‘The Big Pedal’.
As well as encouraging staff and families to bike to the setting wherever possible, colleagues from the day nursery on Knowle Green took it in turns to each cycle for half an hour using the spinning bike, as well as holding a dress down day, raising a grand total of £1375.00 for Cancer Research UK, with donations still incoming.
Knowle Green Day Nursery Team Leader, Ashley Curtin explained;
“We are so proud of the team for taking part in this challenge and raising such an impressive amount for charity. Our nursery families are brilliant at getting behind the worthy causes we support and we’ve had some lovely feedback that this has encouraged bike rides at home. We are now looking forward to planning more fundraising activities for summer as the weather gets warmer.”
Knowle Green Day Nursery adopted Cancer Research UK in 2020 for a year-long fundraising drive, which has now been extended until the end of 2021 due to Covid-19. As a result of the pandemic, the charity are currently facing predicted losses of 20-25% in fundraising income.
