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.
The local nursery, which provides care for children aged 0-5 years, reopened its doors to children after lockdown at the start of June. Since then, the nursery has been operating in small bubble groups ensuring that as well as having fun, the children are learning about washing their hands properly, staying safe and the importance of the NHS.
Last week, in order to say a huge thank you to the NHS, the nursery organised a pyjama day where all the nursery children and staff came into nursery in their pyjamas. The nursery raised an incredible £140 and all the money raised from this activity will go towards the local hospital, Russells Hall, in Dudley.
Amy Etchells, Nursery Manager at Sandhills Day Nursery Wombourne, commented, “From all the nursery staff, children and families at Sandhills Wombourne, we wanted to say a huge thank you to our amazing NHS heroes. The £140 we raised from our pyjama day will all go to our local hospital, Russells Hall, in Dudley which we hope will make a small difference to the wonderful work done by all the staff there.”
She continued, “Many of our nursery parents work at Russells Hall and many of our staff and families have received care and treatment there over the years. Thank you again from everyone at Sandhills Wombourne for all of your continued hard work and support.”
Raising money and awareness for local as well as national charities is an important part of life at Sandhills Wombourne. The nursery encourages all children to play a positive role in contributing to the wider community.
The nursery aims to help the children think about how everyone can really make a difference to local, national and global issues so that they too, believe that they can make a greater impact and difference in the local community and beyond.
