Elmscot Group Day Nurseries, Nursery Schools & Kids Collective Clubs have become charity heroes by raising a staggering £3,092.49 to help support the charities tackling the Australian bushfires.

After the teams and families across all Elmscot Nurseries and Kids Collective Clubs heard of this story, they decided to take action and do what they could to support Australian charities. Baking for Bushfires was the main campaign that ran across all settings, where the children baked cakes to sell in order to raise the much needed funds.

In addition to their Baking for Bushfires cake sale, Elmscot Hale Day Nursery also organised a Sponsored Bounce, where the children made their own kangaroo ears and bounced around the nursery grounds to raise money.

Rachael Lyons, of Elmscot Group said: “We’re equally astounded and grateful that we were able to reach this grand total to donate to Australia. We were so moved by this tragedy, so being able to donate such an amazing amount of money makes us all very proud.

“On behalf of the Elmscot Nurseries and Kids Collective teams, we’d all like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved.”
