During 2015 many of our nurseries were holding lots of activities and events throughout the year to help raise money for one of our chosen charities, Barnado's! We are delighted to finally share that the total raised amount from a year-long effort of fundraising is £43,000!
Our initial target to raise for Barnado's was £30,000 so we are thrilled that we have been able to exceed this and achieve a grand total of £43,000.
Our Divisional Director, Keelie Leahy commented:
"Today (Monday 14th March 2016) we were privileged to spend time with Barnardo's presenting the cheque and hearing about some of the tremendous work that goes on supporting children and families within our communities. Thank you to the team at the Brookside centre, Kidderminster for such a warm welcome and insight into your work.
We were delighted to spend 2015 raising funds for such an amazing charity that impacts so positively on children and families. The four regions within the Division really stepped up to the challenge of raising £30,000.00 over the year and we are all absolutely overwhelmed that we were able to raise £43,000.00"
We are thrilled to have been able to raise this amount and would like to thank all of our dedicated nursery teams and parents who have made this possible.
