Wrapping up for Charity!
Published on 17 December 2018
Dundee nursery children and their families have been wrapping up for local charities, by donating everything from cosy coats to festive food.
Children from The Teddy Bear Club Nursery have been donating ‘gently worn’ coats, jumpers, hats, scarves and gloves for the Salvation Army who visited the nursery today to collect the much-needed clothing. The items will shortly be distributed to both children and adults locally. The children have also been bringing in donations to Dundee Foodbank, including selection boxes and other festive treats, which were also collected today.
Meanwhile, Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas campaign will be boosted by toys chosen by the pre-schoolers with cash from nativity play ticket sales, and other toys bought and donated to the festive campaign. The toys will be collected in the days ahead.
Susan Gorman, Manager commented, “Once again, we are delighted and humbled by the kindness shown by the parents and carers of our Teddy Bear Club children.
“Christmas is a busy time for mums and dads so it’s always heart-warming to see the generosity of our families at this time, whether they donate a selection box or some winter clothes which no longer fit their child. Of course, there’s also a special lesson for children here – that it’s kind to give to people who are less fortunate than themselves, and to think of others.”
