Our Teddy Bear Fundraising Day!
Our teddy bear fundraising day was an amazing success! The children had a fantastic morning of teddy bear cake decorating, making teddy bear sandwiches and playing and learning in our teddy bear themed nursery. At 2pm we opened our Nursery doors to welcome all of the children's wonderful grown ups. I was simply overwhelmed with just how many of our grown ups came to join in with the teddy bear fun! The afternoon was jam packed with a teddy bear hunt, followed by a tasty picnic and lots of cake eating! It was such a lovely, happy atmosphere in Nursery and will definitely be a special day to remember.
The fundraising day was in aid of my beautiful four year old niece, Nicole, who has recently been diagnosed with Batten Disease, which is an extremely rare, fatal neurodegenerative condition for which there is currently no cure, and limits Nicole's precious life. It has been so touching to know that my lovely nursery children, parents/grandparents have been so supportive in being a part of this fundraising journey - a day to be treasured. Your generosity, kindness and caring thoughts have been truly touching so thank you.
Our total funds raised on our teddy bear day came to an unbelievable £225! Wow! Such an overwhelming amount. Words just can't express our thanks and appreciation.
