Children raise funds for Comic Relief
Dean Park Day Nursery staff and children got into the spirit of Red Nose Day on Friday by wearing their best fancy dress and hosting a cake sale, raising £92 – an impressive amount for such little people!
Pirates, animals, superheroes and fairies were among some of the costumed characters that spent the day playing fun games and activities and making cakes to sell to their families. Staff also joined in, wearing face paints and sporting the signature red nose. With thanks to the kind and generous donations of those supporting the children, proceeds raised will be equally shared between Comic Relief and local charity, Julia’s House.
Nursery Manager, Kelly Yates commented: “We’re delighted to have raised nearly £100 through the nursery’s Red Nose Day fundraising activities. As well as having a fun-filled day in support of Comic Relief and our local charity of choice, Julia’s House, the children learnt the importance of helping those who are less fortunate than themselves. It was a pleasure to organise and be a part of.”
