Raising Funds for Cash for Kids
On Friday 2nd May children at Little People Nursery enjoyed a Superhero Day to raise cash for underprivileged children with the Radio Aire’s Cash for Kids campaign. The children, aged from just 6 months to 5 years, enjoyed a range of fundraising activities throughout the week, topped off with a visit from the Lord Mayer to collect the cheque for Radio Aire.
Nursery Manager, Linzi, says “How exciting to receive a visit from the Lord Mayor, he spent time with the children, visiting each age range, and was really interested in the activities we did throughout the week to raise money. We are so pleased to be involved with the Radio Aire Cash for Kids Campaign, Lisa and her team do a fab job of raising funds for so many children within our community who are in need.”
Fundraising has continued throughout the month and Little People are extremely proud to have broken the £1000 barrier, with a few sponsor forms still coming in.
Twitter followers received regular updates with pictures of the children and staff’s wonderful outfits.
