“Our Childhood Day Fayre is open to everyone and anyone. So, please come along and bring your friends and family, play games, have fun, create new happy memories and help us protect children.

“The money raised will go  to the NSPCC, which relies on public donations for the majority of its funding, this could help fund the training for Childline counsellors something our director Sarah Bond is currently undertaking.

“As a nursery, we are dedicated to children and our local community, and it means a lot to us to help promote child protection and safeguarding this Childhood Day.”

Barbara Elsey, Community Fundraising Manager for Nottinghamshire, said: “Richard, Sarah and everyone at NSPCC West Bridgford are all absolutely brilliant. They very much represent the heart of their local community, and our values at the NSPCC. By organising this great summer fayre, they are showing that fundraising can be about doing fun things that people enjoy, which is what Childhood Day is all about.

“Last year, the NSPCC Helpline made 4,574 referrals to agencies in the Midlands about child abuse and neglect concerns; an average of almost 13 referrals a day. With the support of local people here in Nottingham, we can take action against child abuse, and raise funds to ensure young people always have someone to turn to.

“So, come along to the West Bridgford summer fayre to play your part this Childhood Day.”
