Local nursery Sandhills Day Nursery, located in the centre of Wombourne village, recently organised a pyjama day at nursery in order to raise money for the NHS.
This nursery, which offers exceptional care for children aged 0-5 years, reopened its doors in June following the lockdown. Since then, the nursery has been operating in small bubble groups, ensuring a fun and educational environment where children learn about proper handwashing, safety measures, and the invaluable role of the NHS.
As a heartfelt gesture of gratitude to the NHS, Sandhills Day Nursery arranged a pyjama day where both the children and staff attended nursery dressed in their sleepwear. The nursery managed to raise an impressive £140 during this event, with all proceeds going directly to the local hospital, Russells Hall, located in Dudley.
Amy Etchells, the Nursery Manager at Sandhills Day Nursery Wombourne, expressed her appreciation, stating, “On behalf of all the nursery staff, children, and families at Sandhills Wombourne, we extend a massive thank you to our incredible NHS heroes. The £140 raised from our pyjama day will make a meaningful difference to the wonderful work carried out by the dedicated staff at Russells Hall.”
She further added, “Many of our nursery parents work at Russells Hall, and several staff members and families have personally received care and treatment there over the years. Once again, we extend our gratitude from everyone at Sandhills Wombourne for your unwavering dedication and support.”
Across The Old Station Nursery Group, we firmly believe in actively participating in fundraising initiatives and raising awareness for both local and national charities. The nurseries encourage children to play a positive role in contributing to the broader community.
By instilling the belief that everyone can make a difference in local, national, and global issues, Sandhills Wombourne aims to empower children to create a lasting impact in their local community and beyond.
