Christmas fundraising events
Christmas fundraising events
Each Christmas time the nursery has a variety of events to raise money for the mental health charities Mind & Restore.
Andrew & Liz (the owners of the nursery) tragically lost their son Jack in 2017 after a short-period of mental illness at the age of 23. Christmas is very difficult not just for us but for many families across the country so each year we try to raise funds for two wonderful charities.
Due to Covid we will not be doing our annual cycle-athon to get Father Christmas back to the North Pole as we feel that it is not safe to do so. However, if you would like to make a donation to Mind or Restore that would be greatly received as we know how much charities have been struggling this year and how this year is even tougher for those struggling with mental health issues.
If you would like to support us please follow the link above or make a donation when you pop by the nursery to choose your tree.
Instead of the Cycle-athon we have a few other events...
This year's events:
After the success of the Pumpkin Hunt booking system, from the end of November, we are welcoming all children to take part in Bunkers Hill Reindeer Hunt 2021.
Father Christmas' reindeers are hiding around the magically star-lit nursery, and there is a prize and certificate for every child who can seek out Rudolf and his friends then work out the magical word. All the family are welcome to join in the festive fun.
All proceeds going to the mental health charities Mind and Restore.
£2 per child
Join us in our magical celeste pole tent within our 'forest' of Christmas trees to learn how to make your very own traditional, natural wreath for your door this Christmas!
Skills you will learn from our expert Ann:
* how to moss a metal ring * which seasonal greenery works best for wreath making * how to prepare your greenery
* a step by step demonstration of how to create a stunning wreath to adorn your door.
The skills you learn at this workshop mean you can repeat the process each year & adapt the design to create something unique every season or year.
Duration: 2.5 hours
Two sessions: Morning (9:30am-12pm) or Afternoon (1:30pm until 4pm)
