A FUNDRAISING day at a children’s nursery raised money for a charity that helps children born with a “flat head”.

The Children’s Garden Day Nursery in Silver Lane, Stamford, held an open day on Saturday to raise money for Headstart4Babies, a charity that helps to pay for treatment and raise awareness of plagiocephaly and brachycephaly which is commonly known as “flat head” syndrome.

Eight month old Edwin Blackwell, a child at the nursery, was born with the condition and has to wear a helmet 23 hours a day to correct it.

His parents Darren and Andrea of Chatsworth Road, Stamford, were at the event which raised £263.

Visitors enjoyed a very impressive cake stall, Bubble & Squeak clothes, children’s games, lucky dip and ice cream and refreshments.

Nursery manager Christine Abbott said: “I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to make the day such a success.”
