The children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Bedford day nursery supported the Snowflake Appeal run by Home-Start UK – the charity dedicated to supporting families with young children – with a day of snowflake themed fundraising fun.
As part of the snowy celebrations the children enjoyed making snowflake cookies, decorations, singing snowflake songs and creating their own snowflake dances. There were also lots of festive and snow themed arts and crafts activities throughout the week.
Snowflake Appeal merchandising such as enamel pin badges, gift tags and Christmas cards were also available to purchase from the nursery to help raise funds.
The Snowflake Appeal, which runs from November 1 until January 31, is fronted by TV’s Kirstie Allsopp and was launched by Home-Start in 2013. Funds raised by the Snowflake Appeal help to ensure that Home-Start’s volunteers based at 300 centres around the UK have the training and support they need to continue to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children.
Hannah Buckley, nursery manager, said: “This year’s Snowflake Appeal was even better than last year and the children and staff all had a wonderful time. It is a great way to start the festive season while also raising funds for an extremely worthy cause.”
