Pennypot Christmas Fayre raises over £1,000 for charity

Pennypot Christmas Fayre

Festivities were well underway at Pennypot Day Nursery in Chobham as families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas Fayre, all whilst raising vital funds for food banks.

Following 12 months of fundraising for The Trussell Trust food bank network, families and colleagues from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Pennypot Lane were delighted to end the year on a high with a further £1,169.30 contribution to the charity, generated from the event with attractions including bauble bobbing and face painting. 

During the event, families also had the opportunity to take part in festive games including a festive raffle and snowball toss, as well as browsing a range of external stalls with cakes, refreshments and present ideas including personalised Christmas stockings and milk glasses for Santa, whilst children enjoyed arts and crafts, nail painting, a disco and more.

Also in attendance was Princess Belle, who gave out sweet treats to the children and created model animal balloons, much to their delight, as well as Buddy the Elf and Santa Claus, who gave each child and early Christmas present in the specially created grotto area.

Throughout the year, Pennypot staff teams and families have taken part in countless fundraising ventures for the cause, from Thames Bridges Treks and dress up days to summer fetes and bake off challenges, as well as holding regular collections of essential food and household items to donate to the Woking Foodbank to help local people in need.

Pennypot Day Nursery Charity Representative, Aprille Goubert explained;

“We had an amazing day getting into the festive spirit at our Christmas Fayre and it was lovely to see the children immersing themselves in all the fun and games on offer. We have had an incredible year of fundraising and collecting for The Trussell Trust and this was such a brilliant way to round it off, our nursery families show the causes we support so much kindness and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the generosity they’ve demonstrated.”
