Colleagues from Pennypot Day Nursery in Chobham pulled out all the stops for a special bake off at the setting, where they showcased their talents to raise money for charity.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Pennypot Lane, each room team created their very own cake masterpiece, themed around beloved children’s books including ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Winnie the Pooh’, which were then judged on taste, texture, creativity and presentation by an expert panel, including Nursery Chef, parents and the local postman.
With the Ladybirds team crowned as winners of the competition, the cakes were then auctioned off to nursery families, raising over £100.00 for The Trussell Trust food bank network, which will go towards helping feed people in the community that need it most.
The team were also delighted to visit local charity, Grassroots, who support vulnerable young adults in gaining valuable life skills, where they met with Centre Supervisor, Joey Burrows, to donate their ‘Very Hungry Caterpillar’ inspired cake for the group to enjoy.
Pennypot Day Nursery Manager, Carol McDonough explained;
“The bake off was an incredible success and we were so impressed with the creations that the team presented, to know we are helping such worthy causes is a real bonus. We are thrilled to be supporting The Trussell Trust this year in their important mission to end food poverty and we are hugely grateful to our nursery families for their continued generosity.”
Pennypot Day Nursery are supporting The Trussell Trust as part of a year-long fundraising and donation drive, along with all other Childbase Partnership settings across the country.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
