Bath Preschoolers give charity a boost with Vintage Summer Fete


Disney Princesses joined preschoolers and friends for a vintage summer fete at Miles house Day Nursery in Bath to give a charity for critically ill children a £500 boost.

The beloved characters from cartoon films like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty weren’t the only attractions at the day nursery fete in Bathwick Hill where staff dressed in costumes from the 1940s and 50s; served traditional lemonade and manned stalls to the sound of ‘Swing’ music.

“This is the highlight in a busy social calendar at Miles House as we get to spend quality time with the parents of our children and, of course, open our wonderful garden to visitors of all ages,” said Area Manager, Sallyann Freeston, thanking everyone for their generous support of the fund-raiser.

Local businesses and parents donated goods like a bathroom accessory set worth over £400 and vouchers for local retailers for a raffle, and in addition to ice cream served from a vintage van, stalls and attractions included cakes, sweets and a ‘tin can’ shy to boost funds raised for the Children’s Air Ambulance.

The Charity has just one helicopter providing rapid response times to trauma and medical emergencies, for children and babies throughout the UK and is funded entirely by donations.

“I believe this charity is close to all our hearts because we are surrounded by happy, confident children enjoying life and all the opportunities available to them. We are celebrating that today while making sure babies and young children get the specialist support they need in difficult times,” said Sallyann Freeston.
