A team of devoted colleagues from Windermere Day Nursery in Kettering have completed a climb up Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, all to raise vital funds for charity.
Embarking on the challenge to raise money for The Trussell Trust, the seven-strong team of colleagues; Hayley Kernick, Katie Waterfield, Hollie McDonald, Sian Kenny, Amy Kitchen, Toyah Causeway and Maddison Dunbar, were delighted to raise a total of £600.00 for the cause, which will now help provide emergency food parcels to local people facing hardship.
The climb up Snowdon, which sits at 1,085 metres above sea level, is the latest in a series of fundraising initiatives for the team from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Haweswater Road, who have also recently enjoyed a pirate dress up day, fitness bootcamp with nursery families and 5k sponsored walk to raise money for the worthy cause.
Windermere Day Nursery Team Leader, Hayley Kernick explained;
“We are so proud to have completed the Snowdon climb and all felt such a sense of achievement when we got to the top. Although it was tough at times, it was worth it to be able to make this donation to The Trussell Trust, who work tirelessly to help end food poverty. We are hugely grateful to everyone who supported us in this adventure.”
Windermere Day Nursery have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising drive.
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.
