‘INCREDIBLE kindness’ helped families at a Rugby nursery to raise over £1,000 for a charity which helps babies born premature or sick.
Nature Trails Day Nursery in Cawston raised the funds at its Summer Fair through activities including Hook-a-Duck and Tin Can Alley games, pony rides, face painting, a cake stall and a tombola.
The Coventry Road nursery raised a grand total of £1,135 for the Bliss charity.
Louise Gulliver, Nature Trails Day Nursery’s Charity Representative, said: “We had a fantastic day celebrating in the sunshine with everyone, and raising so much for Bliss was an incredible bonus which will do so much good.
“Despite the current climate being tough for everyone, our nursery families still show such incredible kindness towards those less fortunate and we are so grateful for their unfailing support and generosity.”
Nature Trails Day Nursery has adopted Bliss for a year-long fundraising drive.
The Summer Fair is the latest in a series of fundraising initiatives for the nursery, whose staff have recently spent the night sleeping rough under the stars as part of the Childbase Partnership’s Big Sleep Out, as well as holding a Father’s Day raffle and Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Tea Party and Cake Sale to raise vital funds for the charity.
