Nursery children 'get wiggy with it' for charity


Children at a nursery in Kidderminster donned their wackiest wigs to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust on Friday 22 March.

Youngsters and colleagues at The Co-operative Childcare in Coventry Street took up the challenge to ‘Get Wiggy With It’ by wearing brightly coloured wigs and hair pieces in aid of the charity.

Senior Nursery Manager Babita Saroy said: “Teenage Cancer Trust is a great cause and the children were very excited to take part in the fun day and wear some funky wigs. All the colleagues enjoyed joining in with the wiggery too!

“This is a charity close to our heart because of the work it does to support young people. Our nursery is keen to help charitable organisations and support them in whatever way we can.”

The Co-operative Childcare is part of The Midcounties Co-operative which has chosen to support the Teenage Cancer Trust as its charity partner in 2013. Colleagues will take part in a range of fundraising activities to help the UK’s only dedicated charity to improving the lives of young people with cancer.

As a leading national ethical childcare provider which operates 49 nurseries and two after school clubs around the country, The Co-operative Childcare delivers early years care and learning in a safe and stimulating environment. The nurseries have strong connections to the local communities and all are encouraged to get involved with local groups.
