Bright Horizons Tytherington Nursery supports humanitarian aid charity

Hope and Aid direct are a volunteer led, UK based, non-political and non-affiliated humanitarian aid charity currently focusing on the situation in Ukraine. Truck convoys with essential donated equipment are sent out to support the 13 million people stranded in areas most affected by active fighting.

Bright Horizons Tytherington Day Nursery and Preschool has been collecting toys and essential equipment for Hope and Aid Direct’s 39th truck leaving for Kyiv in mid-January. Examples of items donated include nappies, wooden bead mazes, toy phones and picture books for children. Some of the donations will also be supplied to Care UK Charity (Warrington), for refugees in need in the North West of England.

Nursery Manager of Tytherington, Lorraine, said: “We have been supporting Hope & Aid Direct since March of last year and continue to be a collection point for the charity within our community. Our colleagues, parents and local families have been so supportive of this charity which warms my heart. It started with toiletries at first and then moved onto children's toys and books. It is so lovely to get feedback from the camps, one little boy shrieked with delight as he was given some toys, something that has been missing from his life since fleeing Ukraine. It is such a good feeling to be able to help these children and their families if only to bring a smile to a child's face.”
