‘Walking All Over Cancer’ at Westwood Day Nursery
After being set the challenge of each walking 10,000 steps a day throughout the month of March, dedicated colleagues from Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry were delighted to exceed their targets, all whilst raising money for charity.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Business Park, a total of 16 members of the team pledged to take part in the fundraiser to raise vital donations for Cancer Research UK, involving their families and finding new ways to keep moving, and raising an incredible £1,460 for the worthy cause in the process.
Westwood Day Nursery Manager, Carly Ward explained;
“We are so proud of our colleagues for their incredible efforts and the phenomenal amount of money they have raised for Cancer Research UK. Our nursery families are brilliant at supporting the causes we support, and we have also had some brilliant feedback that this has inspired them to take part in the challenge at home. We are now looking forward to planning more events as the weather gets warmer.”
Westwood 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.
