A message arrived via the African Oyster Trust website: “Hi, we are holding a Fun Day to support the African Oyster Trust at Barn Owl Day Nursery … how would you like to receive the proceeds?”
We quickly contacted the nursery; how had this happened? The manager said, “We have two enthusiastic staff members who wanted to do something for a charity and they liked your website.” Wow! They had trawled the net for suitable charities and ours came out tops!
Attending the event, we witnessed how much thought, planning and organisation had gone into the enterprise, with all sorts of activities for little ones, including hook a duck, tombola, hip-hop dancing, lots of scrummy things to eat and drink, and even exotic henna tattoos.
So, we say “Bravo and a Big Thank You!” to all at the Barn Owl Day Nursery, especially Sophie and Mercedes. We will ensure that the £313.77 you raised will be spent on the sort of thing girls and boys need and enjoy most.
