A Nantwich nursery joined others in the same group to help raise more than £3,000 for victims of the Australian bushfires.

Youngsters at Elmscot Day Nursery in Nantwich pitched in with £127.16 raised for WIRES Wildfire Rescue.

It was one of seven nurseries across Cheshire in the group to club together and stage fundraising events.

Thousands of square miles of Australia have been destroyed and millions of people and animals have been affected by this unprecedented natural disaster.

Teams and families across all Elmscot Nurseries and Kids Collective Clubs decided to take action and do what they could to support Australian charities.

Baking for Bushfires was the main campaign that ran across all settings, where the children baked cakes to sell in order to raise the much needed funds.

In addition, Elmscot Hale Day Nursery organised a sponsored bounce, where the children made their own kangaroo ears and bounced around the nursery grounds to raise money.

Rachael Lyons, Group Operations Manager of Elmscot Group, said: “We’re equally astounded and grateful that we were able to reach this grand total to donate to Australia.

“We were so moved by this tragedy, so being able to donate such an amazing amount of money makes us all very proud.

“On behalf of the Elmscot Nurseries and Kids Collective teams, we’d all like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved – whether you bought some cakes, sponsored the bounce or donated cakes to sell.

“Your generosity will be appreciated by each of the charities that the funds are being donated to during this time of great need for Australia.”

Elmscot Group provides childcare and education to over 1,800 children across Cheshire.
