Pre-schoolers at Highfield Day Nursery in Edgbaston have begun a year-long ‘kindness campaign’ with a bumper collection of gifts for Birmingham victims of domestic abuse.
Throughout January, staff, children, and parents at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ day nursery in Highfield Road, have been collecting everything from nappies to clothes and toys to support Birmingham city’s ‘First Night’ campaign.
As Manager, Jo Hassan, explained, the nursery is committed to performing ‘25 acts of kindness’ this year as part of celebrations to mark the quarter century of their award-winning, employee-owned company, Childbase Partnership.
“It is a special birthday which makes the ’25 Acts of Kindness’ campaign very important to us all. As always, our parents have been brilliant in both their support and generosity. I believe this campaign has touched us all,” she said.
The annual appeal is being organised by Birmingham Community Safety Partnership which is seeking to raise awareness about domestic abuse and violence and encourage donations for women and families who have fled their homes empty-handed.
The essential supplies, to support women and children on their first night in one of the city’s many refuges, were delivered to a collection point at Harbourne Police Station.
