Children at Bright Horizons Teddies Tonbridge Nursery in Kent have dressed up as their favourite superheroes for the day to raise money for the organisation’s foundation.
The children brought in their old t-shirts to decorate with pens and paint, as well as their own capes and masks. Staff arranged a number of themed activities for the children to take part in throughout the day. All of the funds raised from the day will go towards the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
“All the children thoroughly enjoyed becoming superheroes for the day,” said Sam Booth, nursery manager. “Anytime we are able to raise some funds for the foundation, we are delighted to do.”
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.
