Edinburgh children’s art auction raises money for charity
Date: 01 Jul 2019
Children at Bright Horizons Elsie Inglis Early Learning and Childcare in Edinburgh recently hosted their own art auction as part of the nursery’s relaunch event.
The children raised £170 for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, on a day the nursery also received a special visit from Maree Todd MSP, Minister for Children and Young People.
“£25 for an individual piece of art work was a bargain,” said Michelle Mcleary, Bright Horizons’ Growth Manager for Scotland.
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.
