Kingswellies Nursery making headlines
Anchor scavenger hunt to mark charity anniversary
To help mark the milestone 20th anniversary of the friends of ANCHOR chairty, Kingswellies nursery has organised an anchor scavenger hunt. Children from Nursery are joining in the event, to find 20 hidden anchors in the grounds and offices around Prime Four Business Park. Inspired by Friend’s of ANCHOR’s 20for20 Anchor Voyage, the children will have a week, as of yesterday, to find the anchors. Each child was given an activity booklet to check off the anchors and will get a sticker for each one.
Kirsten Horne, campaign officer at Friends of ANCHOR, said; “We are pleased to see so many people get behind the campaign in their own creative and interactive way. The Anchor Voyage seems to have captured the imagination of so many, and it’s lovely to hear of the fantastic week of fundraising KingsWellies Nursery are embarking on.”
Parents can join in a bake “sail” and staff will take turns to ride an exercise bike every minute of the working day for the week, to reach a 500 mile target.
Kerry Robertson, the KingsWellies nursery director, said: “Supporting the cancer and haematology patients at the ANCHOR Unit is a worthwhile cause. I think is great to involve not only our kids but also the parents and the staff too.”
KingsWellies Nursery has pledged that all funds raised will go directly the Friends of ANCHOR Dream Big campaign.
