Children and staff from Footprints Day Nurseries in Bollington and Macclesfield went Spotacular for BBC Children in Need last week and raised over £650!
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need’s exciting new schools fundraising campaign, The Big Spotacular, is encouraging school and nurseries to dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes and goods to raise more money than ever before for disadvantaged children and young people.
As part of Footprints’ fundraising plans, children and staff took part in sponsored spotty walks around Bollington, yummy cake sales, pyjama days and spent Friday dressed head-to-toe in spots!
Rachel Parry, Nursery Manager at Bollington said “We’ve really enjoyed raising over £650 for BBC Children in Need this year. The children loved going spotty for The Big Spotacular and making and selling cakes in our cake sale! Our children’s families joined us for a sponsored spotty walk and the outcome was overwhelming and despite the weather we had lots of fun! The online resources and free fundraising kit really helped make the activities even more special.”
Lloyds Bank and BBC Children in Need have encouraged schools and nurseries to join the fun by claiming their free Spotacular kit, containing fundraising ideas, resources, and other spotty delights.
Stuart Beaver, Director, Partnership & Community Programmes at Lloyds Banking Group said: “Our partnership with BBC Children in Need continues to produce fantastic results, in particular with the brilliant fundraising happening in schools and nurseries across the country. The partnership continues to form an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, with education one of the key pillars in helping to address some of the big issues facing the people, businesses and communities of Britain today.
“Handing the fundraising planning over to the children was a great success last year, and it has been lovely to see so many settings turn their fundraising activity Spotacular this year.”
