Nursery children at Splash Day Nursery wear it pink to raise £500 for cancer charity
Nursery children helped raised more than £500 for charity yesterday.
Children at Splash Day Nursery in Island Centre Way in Enfield Lock dressed in pink and baked cakes and biscuits to raise £510 for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Manager Fay Gillam said: "It was wonderful; it was amazing that all the staff, parents and children did so well to raise as much money as we did.
“The charity is something close to all of our hearts and the money is outstanding; it’s the highest amount we have ever raised for charity.”
She said the “best bit” about the charity day was how messy the 46 children got while they were baking at the nursery.
Staff also got in the spirit of the day by dressing in pink or as superheroes, with two members of staff dying their hair pink using temporary dye to raise money for the good cause.
The cash was raised through donations, sponsorships and cake and biscuit sales.
Staff at the five-year-old nursery decided to raise money to fight against breast cancer as friends of staff have been affected by the condition.
Nursery nurse Rochelle Toney said the pink day was “really good” and the children enjoyed dressing up and dancing during an afternoon disco.
Ms Gillam said the charity day was such a success the staff plan to organise it annually.
