Kiddi Caru Milton Keynes Walnut Tree Sparkles For Home-Start’s Snowflake Appeal
The children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Milton Keynes Walnut Tree 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 during the week of 30th November.
The children and staff baked a selection of festive biscuits and cakes for their Christmas cake stall. Everyone enjoyed dressing up in their favourite blue and white clothes as well as making snowflakes and Christmas cards.
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 1st November to 31st January, 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.
Louise Higgins, Senior 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.”
