Active Learning Finchley Nursery recently held its own cultural carnival which raised money for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
The children celebrated the culture of a variety of countries and the carnival included a steel pan workshop, henna making, smoothie making, face painting and craft stalls.
“The children had lots of fun taking part in the cultural carnival this year,” said Poppy Hinton, nursery principal. “We were delighted to raise £300 for the foundation.”
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.
