The money raised at the nursery’s Christmas fayre, which included a Santa café, tombola, slime making and caricature artist, was added to funds previously donated at the nursery’s Christmas nativity held at Dukinfield Baptist Church in December.
The charity, the only one of its kind in the UK and Ireland is dedicated to supporting women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy or within 12 months after giving birth.
Lucy Butterworth, Acting Nursery Manager at the Dukinfield nursery on Jeffrey’s Drive, said, “We’re absolutely over the moon to have raised this amount of money for such a wonderful charity. A massive thank you goes to all of our families and friends who have given so generously”.
On receiving the cheque, Mummy’s Star Information & Support Worker Tracey Derbyshire said, “We are so touched by the fundraising that has been done by the team at Kids Planet Dukinfield. As a small charity, we are able to stretch this kind of money so far so that many families can be supported through the traumatic time they experience when diagnosed with cancer. Thank you to both the staff team and all the parents who contributed”.
