Steps star visited Wynyard Nursery for children's fundraising day

Article By: Kids 1st

A Wynyard nursery held a ‘Dragonfly Day’ for North East children’s cancer charity, Josie’s Dragonfly Trust, on 16 August with a special guest visit from Faye Tozer from Brit Group ‘Steps’.

During their ‘Dragonfly Day’ the children from Kids 1st Wynyard participated in sponsored toddles, teddy bears picnics and a dancethon to raise money for the charity. All of the children have also made dragonfly penny collectors to collect spare change at home. As a patron of the charity, Faye joined the children to watch their dance performance and to tell them about the charity they were raising money for.

Kids 1st Nurseries are the sponsors of the charity’s third annual Dragonfly Ball on Saturday 7th September. Set to be a spectacular evening and the biggest event to be held at Close House this year, tickets are now on sale for a night like no other.

Entertainment will be provided by Paul Pashley who will be joined by his swing band and a very special guest as well as other performers, fabulous prizes and plenty Dragonfly Surprises throughout the night.

The Dragonfly Ball raises funds to brighten the lives of children and young people living with cancer. Money raised goes towards providing Cash Gifts and Dragonfly Dreams to the one in three young cancer patients who have no hope of a cure. The charity was set up six years ago by inspirational teenager Josie Grove shortly before she lost her battle with leukemia and has since gone from strength to strength. Josie’s Dragonfly Trust now supports hundreds of children each year in cancer wards across the UK by offering a moment of happiness to create special memories with family and friends.
