Scarlett and Lydia are raising money this weekend to help keep their nursery going following the Corona Virus pandemic.
St George’s Childcare is a fantastic local charity comprising a full daycare nursery, term time preschool, after school club and holiday club - rated Outstanding by Ofsted. It has been providing childcare for 30 years and also offers subsidised places to families in financial difficulty and children in vulnerable circumstances. All their financial resources are dedicated to caring for the children and they are one of the few childcare facilities to not charge any registration fees, bank holiday fees or extra subsidies.
Unlike most other nurseries, when the corona virus pandemic forced partial closure, St George’s refunded all parents their fees in full and has not asked for any retainers to be paid. This has resulted in a 90% drop in income, which along with the cancellation of all their own planned fundraising events, means that their future is now in jeopardy.
Scarlett has really loved her time at St George’s Little Dragons preschool, and Lydia was due to start in the nursery in September, so they would like to help raise money to keep St George’s going.
Together they will be doing a sponsored 10k over the bank holiday weekend - Scarlett on her scooter and Lydia in her pushchair.
Please can you support them and help keep this fantastic charity going! Any donation you are able to make will be very gratefully received.
Many thanks for your support
Scarlett, Lydia, Felicity and Adam
