Greengables nursery staff complete ‘Memory Walk’ Fundraiser
Joining 1500 people for the aptly named ‘Memory Walk’ in Reading were a two woman team from Greengables Day Nursery in Sandhurst who boosted Alzheimer’s Society coffers by £270.
Tired but exhilarated and back in nursery in Yeovil Road, Owlsmoor the following day, Greengables Manager, Sian Elliott and Team Leader for the under 2s, Julia Grant, were encouraged by children to re-live the 7km hike at Kings Meadow in Reading.
“We showed them photographs and tried to describe the atmosphere of an event attracting so many people all determined to make a difference. Helping others is one of our ‘golden rules’ in nursery so the children’s enthusiasm just added another lovely memory to those we made on the day,” said Sian, thanking everybody who so generously supported their fund-raising efforts.
The proceeds go to the Alzheimer’s Society which Greengables Day Nursery has adopted for a year-long fund-raising drive.
