First Steps Nursery NHS Rainbow Week!

Raising funds for the children's ward at Poole Hospital

Local nursery raises over £1000 for children’s ward

First Steps Nursery in Oakdale, have raised vital funds for the children’s ward by creating an event held 14 – 21 September – NHS Rainbow Week!

“As we remained open throughout the Covid-19 Lockdown we were overwhelmed by the support from our loyal customers and the local community and we’ve decided we would like to do something to support our local hospital and will be raising money for the Children’s Ward at Poole Hospital.”

Sydonie Jones, Deputy Manager

Each day the nursery held themed activities with the children such as painting rainbow coloured cookies and decorating rainbow hats to wear, they even demonstrated a skittles science experiment with water creating a beautiful rainbow on a plate!

First Steps Nursery set a target of £500 and by the first day they had already reached this!

Children and staff took part in wearing bright rainbow colours each day of the week and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves while raising funds for the children’s ward. We were even sent evidence of their window cleaner taking part!

Poole Hospital Charity has absolutely loved supporting First Steps Nursery with their NHS Rainbow Week, the amazing effort they put into this event and the enthusiasm for Poole Hospital has been wonderful. The funds they have raised will mean so much to the children’s ward and make a huge difference in enhancing patient care.
