We wanted to do some­thing pos­i­tive, says direc­tor, as fun day tops £1,000

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

some­thing pos­i­tive to aid the vic­tims of the Gren­fell Tower tragedy.

A bouncy cas­tle, face paint­ing, and fun and games put smiles on faces, and or­gan­is­ers said the event was a suc­cess.

De­spite some in­clement weather on the day, the event was well sup­ported by par­ents, staff and the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The nurs­ery is still count­ing the money raised, but con­firmed it is more than £1,000.

Sarah, owner and direc­tor of Bea­cons­field Child­care, said: “I felt it was im­por­tant to mark the an­niver­sary of the fire in a pos­i­tive way, and do some­thing to help oth­ers in need, as we now have a beau­ti­ful build­ing.

“We’ve also had a lot of sup­port from ev­ery­one along the way, which we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated, so it felt a good way to cel­e­brate our com­mu­nity.”
