Children at Bright Kids Studley have been out and about in the local community, donating food to local care homes and charities, and visiting residents as part of the nursery’s harvest festival celebrations.
Tots from the Sunbeams room visited Studley’s Field View care home to sing songs to residents and donate food they had collected for the festival, while youngsters from the Shining Lights room took a donation to Mencap.
Rebecca Whitehurst, care assistant at Field View, said that residents had enjoyed meeting the children and participating in the sing-along: “It was lovely for the residents to see the children, they enjoyed their singing and the residents got involved, it was a very good experience.”
The three- and four-year-olds from Shining Lights then met with Ian Mullings, manager of Mencap in Studley, donating produce for adults with learning difficulties supported by the charity.
Mr Mullings said: “I would like to thank Bright Kids children and staff for bringing this lovely donation of food to the people who live at 62 Station Road. The accommodation supports adults with learning difficulties within a supported caring service for Heart of England Mencap.”
Tina Davis, Manager of Bright Kids Studley, said: “The children have really enjoyed this year’s harvest festival activities. I’d like to thank everyone for giving so generously in order for us to share our donations with the community.”
