CHILDREN IN NEED
We had an amazing week fund raising here at Monkey Puzzle Kingston, managing to raise an impressive £538!
A huge thanks to our generous parents and families of our children for helping us reach such a great amount, it all goes to a fantastic cause.
During our week of fund raising we had a week of planned activates including:
T-shirt day, PUDSY cake sale, sponsored obstacle course, pyjama and crazy hair day, get active with PUDSY moves, who’s that baby competition and PUDSY mask making.
The children had an amazing week of fun taking part in all the exciting activities, and I know are pre-schoolers actually had an understanding of what the charity was about by the end of the week. The children’s favourite activity was definitely the obstacle course where they got physical climbing, jumping, crawling through tunnels and racing to the end. Please check out our Instagram to see some of our children’s videos running the obstacle course. https://monkeypuzzlekingston.co.uk
We also have to give a HUGE special mention to one of our staff members Annie (baby room leader). She was growing her hair for 4 years to a length that could be donated to children who are going through hair loss when suffering from cancer. It was an extremely selfless act, and we are very proud of her ! She helped to raise a substantial amount of money and awareness for CHILDREN IN NEED and THE PRINCESS CANCER TRUST. Annie got recognition from The BBC themselves on our Instagram page https://monkeypuzzlekingston.co.uk . She will bring a lot of joy to a little ones life!!
I would also like to say a huge thanks to one of my deputy managers for organising such a fantastic week. She really put her heart and soul in to it.
