Westwood Christmas Fayre raises over £400 charity

Festivities were well underway at Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry as families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas Fayre, all whilst raising vital funds for charity.

Following 12 months of fundraising for The Trussell Trust food bank network, families and colleagues from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Business Park were delighted to end the year on a high with a further £400 contribution to the charity, generated from the event with attractions including bauble making and decorating.

During the event, families also enjoyed games including hook-a-duck and a staff edition of ‘guess the baby photo’, a festive bake sale, crafting station, Christmas body art and the opportunity to meet Santa and his elves, with children each receiving a special gift.

Throughout the year, Westwood teams and families have taken part in countless fundraising ventures for the cause, from pyjama days and pumpkin carving competitions to summer fetes and sponsored events, as well as holding regular collections of essential food and household items to donate to the Coventry Foodbank to help local people in need.

Westwood Day Nursery Manager, Lyndsey Matthews explained;

“We had such a fun-filled morning at our Christmas Fayre and it was lovely to be able to catch up with our wonderful nursery families whilst raising money for such an incredible cause. We are so grateful for all the support we’ve had this year in helping The Trussell Trust provide emergency food parcels to those in need, and have really enjoyed witnessing the children’s understanding of helping others and the example of kindness this sets to them.”

Westwood have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising and donation drive.
