Children and staff at Bright Horizons St Mary’s Day Nursery and Preschool in Hulme, Manchester have held a bake off event in support of the organisation’s foundation.
The children visited their local Asda store to buy the ingredients used in the “Great St Mary’s Bake Off” to help staff make cakes and biscuits. Parents arrived to purchase goods and donate to the cause, with all of the funds raised going toward the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
“There was a great selection for parents to choose from and donate to a great cause,” said Nursery Manager Stephanie Ruddock. “We were delighted to play our small part in supporting a charity so close to our hearts.”
Set up in 2005, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children’s sole purpose is to help children and families in crisis. They achieve this by working with local community groups, shelters and with Bright Horizons clients to create Bright Spaces®, which are indoor and outdoor play spaces located in homeless shelters, domestic violence refuges and refugee centres.
The spaces are created in order to provide children and families in need with a special place to play, have fun and most of all feel safe.
