Woodlands make special toy donation to charity

Woodlands British Heart Foundation shop donation

Kind-hearted pre-schoolers from Woodlands Day Nursery in Barnet have made a generous donation of their pre-loved toys, all to help raise vital funds for the British Heart Foundation.

After holding a collection in aid of Heart Month, which is taking place throughout February, children from the award-winning setting on Orchard Road were delighted to walk to their local British Heart Foundation shop, where they delivered their old books, games and teddies to volunteers and had the chance to speak to them about the impact their donation would have, with the money raised used to support families and fund life-saving research.

On the walk back to nursery, pre-schoolers were thrilled to stop off at their nearby pond, where they admired the local wildlife and discussed the importance of giving back. 

Woodlands Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Emma Bloom explained;

“We are so proud of the children for showing such kindness and maturity in handing over their toys to help others. They did such a brilliant job and were so pleased to see how happy this made the volunteers at the British Heart Foundation, who were also incredibly impressed by their thoughtfulness. This was a brilliant way of involving the children in our awareness drive, whilst promoting compassion and clearing room for new books and toys.”

Woodlands has adopted the British Heart Foundation for a year-long fundraising and awareness drive. Heart Month is taking place throughout February 2024.
