TOD­DLERS walked or wad­dled around a Wey­bridge park in one­sies to raise money for two char­i­ties, writes Zoe Hole­house.

The spon­sored walk was held at Church­field Recre­ation Ground last Thurs­day.

Chil­dren, par­ents and staff at Church­field House Day Nurs­ery in Wey­bridge, took to the park to raise funds for Tiny Tick­ers and Brompton Foun­tain. Both th­ese char­i­ties pro­vide support for par­ents and their ba­bies who have sus­pected heart de­fects.

Church­field Nurs­ery chose to support those char­i­ties as or­gan­iser, Jessica Foil, has seen how heart de­fects can af­fect a fam­ily.

Toni Kirby, nurs­ery man­ager, was pleased with how the event went. She said: “Jessica or­gan­ised the event, where par­ents were able to support and do­nate through the nurs­ery.

“Some par­ents walked with the chil­dren, who had a won­der­ful time and we ex­plained to the older chil­dren why we were do­ing it and that we were rais­ing money to help peo­ple.”

The nurs­ery’s event has so far raised around £300 for the cho­sen char­i­ties.
