Children and staff at Bright Horizons Elsie Inglis Nursery and Preschool in Edinburgh have held their own Christmas Fun Day and raised hundreds of pounds for the organisation’s foundation.
The day featured a range of stalls and activities at the nursery including a tombola, face painting, a raffle and cake decorating. There was also a chance for each child to meet Santa in his grotto and ask for what they would like for Christmas.
The fun day raised a total of £651.94 for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
“The Christmas Fun Day was a great success and we were delighted to have so many attendees come out on the day,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Kate Hubbert. “To raise more than £600 for the foundation is an excellent effort and a result we are all delighted with.”
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.
