Nursery superheroes raise money for ‘Mind’
Children and staff from Cherry Trees Day Nursery in Cranfield have unleashed their superhero alter-egos to raise money for leading mental health charity, ‘Mind’.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Duncan Road, an array of show stopping costumes were exhibited as children explained what their superpower would be, with answers ranging from the ability to fly, to being able to turn lights on and off with the ‘zap’ of a finger.
Cherry Trees Day Nursery Manager, Emma Jestice explained;
“We love an occasion to dress up at nursery, and everybody has made such a brilliant effort with their costumes. We even made our very own ‘Batmobile’. Mind is an incredibly worthy charity and we’re very pleased to be donating £100 to them from this event.
We aim to make a real difference when it comes to supporting worthy causes and Mind is reaching out to about 14 million people a year in the UK who are experiencing a mental health problem.”
Cherry Trees Day Nursery has adopted Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales which offers specialised services, advice and support to those living with a mental health problem, for a year-long fundraising drive.
Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Money raised will fund the charity’s work including the Mind Infoline and campaigning to secure a better deal for everybody who experiences a mental health problem.
