Children at Bunny Run Childcare got involved in different activities during their charity week to help raise money for their chosen charity, Chestnut Tree House.

The charity of 15 years provides children with the best quality of life no matter how short it might be.

One of the competitions between the children at the setting was called ‘How long can you stand like a flamingo?’ with the winning time being 34 seconds.

A woodland walk was held for families and their children to take part in, which included searching for bunnies.

Angela Harland, nursery manager, said: “Every year we choose a different charity to support, and this year it was the children’s hospice.

“We held a week of activity which the children loved.

“One of the games was ‘how many different pieces of fruit can you try?’”

One parent who works for Santander kindly added £140 to the fundraising pot, donated by the company.

The nursery added more to the amount, raising a final total of £2,000.

After the money was collected, the nursery sat the children down to make sure they knew where their sponsorship was going.

Ms Harland said: “We believe it is right to explain to the children that not everyone has everything they need.”

Georgina Cook, team member at Chestnut Tree, visited the nursery to collect the final cheque.

She said: “It is wonderful to come and visit the children and see them reading in their woodland setting.

“On behalf of everyone at Chestnut Tree I would like to say a huge thank you to the children, their parents, carers and the staff of Bunny Run for all their support.”

Bunny Run Childcare plans to keep supporting the hospice.

Staff member Claire Turner, from Bunny Run, will be raising additional funds by parachuting out of a plane in October.
