Charity begins at nursery

SR1bDid you feel the world wobble last month?

We assured Willow that her and her fellow nursery-goers’ efforts to jellify the planet reached at least as far as where we were in the city.

The pre-schoolers were jumping, twirling, wobbling, bouncing and more all in aid of Sport Relief which gave both Willow and her brother at his school the chance to don their athletic attire and have sporty fun in aid of charity.

With many fundraisers such as 5Ks and 10Ks beyond the stride of little ones it’s lovely that new initiatives are being designed specifically for younger children too as their enthusiasm will more than match any daddy long legs.

Missed Sports Relief?  Don’t worry, there’s still lots more fun to get involved with.
