Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster, which raised over £1,438.07 for charity last year has now formalised its charity giving for the coming academic year, linking with children’s charity Crackerjacks Children’s Trust.
Crackerjacks Children’s Trust supports children so that they can participate fully in their community and enjoy the same choices, opportunities and experiences as other children by providing specialist items such as adapted wheelchairs, trikes, walking frames, respite breaks, as well as soft play areas and sensory toys.
Little Trinity Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter said: “We always try to support as many charities as we can throughout the year on top of selecting a special organisation as our charity partner, so we’re thrilled to be supporting Crackerjacks this year as they do amazing work supporting families and children who experience difficulty undertaking everyday activities.”
It costs on average twice as much to raise a child with an impairment as a non-disabled child, with families finding it more difficult and challenging just to undertake everyday life activities.
Gaynor added: “The message we try and get across to our children in nursery is to think about others and about how fortunate we all are to be healthy and have good family support, and by doing a little we can all make a big difference to other children’s lives.
“Focusing mainly on one local charity each year means we can involve more of our parents and children in our fundraising activities and help promote our chosen charity and the support they offer to children and families.”
