17 Jul Holy Apostles’ Pre-school walks for Winston’s Wish
Holy Apostles’ pre-schoolers have been learning about the local charity Winston’s Wish. One of our parents works as a volunteer and asked if we could adopt the charity this year for our annual fundraiser. The children listened attentively when Joanna explained the work the charity does with children who have suffered bereavement. She explained how it feels when a parent or brother or sister dies and how the charity has specially trained people who can help. Joanna said, “it is so lovely to come to preschool near me and share the important work Winston’s Wish does.”
The pre-schoolers were excited to start their toddle and are keen to get walking around the school field; here they are assembling at the start line!
Excitement rose as they ran around the field because they spotted the arrival of Winston Bear. They had been told that he liked to ‘high-five’ and a rowdy ‘hello’ when he arrived at an event! He certainly received a lot of attention!
The children asked Winston Bear to join them on their toddle so he set off with his helper to guide him around the field.
Holy Apostles’ pre-schoolers have had a great time learning about raising money for a charity and having fun whilst they do it! Several children decided to see how many laps they could do and covered the 800m track at a fast pace.
We all had an amazing day and we managed to raise a magnificent £431.05!
Thank you to everyone who took part and most importantly sponsored our pre-schoolers.
If you’re looking for a ‘Preschool near me’ Holy Apostles has places available for a September 2019 start. Due to many children going up to school this year we have more places than usual. So do contact us to discuss a place for your child and come and see our preschool setting for yourself.
