Headstart Pre-school and Nursery in Market Deeping takes part in ‘Step Challenge’ for Marie Curie Lincolnshire
A nursery has stepped up this spring to support Marie Curie Lincolnshire.
Children and staff at Headstart Pre-school and Nursery in Market Deeping along with their sister nurseries across Lincolnshire are taking part in the ‘Step Challenge’.
The nursery chain is offering prizes to the staff member who achieves the most steps and the branch which collectively completes the highest amount will receive £300 to spend on equipment. The children are also taking part in a daffodil colouring competition and a scavenger hunt to encourage more steps.
Tracy Dixon, a nursery manager, said: “We are great supporters of Marie Curie. This year is no different, we have just added an element of staff well-being to the activities and some friendly competition amongst the nurseries.
“We hope that together we can make a difference to the lives of the people that Marie Curie supports.”
Any money raised by the challenge will fund hours of night-time nursing within the county for end of life patients within their homes.
Lauren Alexander, community fundraiser for Marie Curie Lincolnshire thanked the children and staff for their effort.
She said: “The past year has been incredibly tough for everyone and we are grateful they have thought about us as part of their well-being step challenge. I look forward to seeing the photo updates from the children’s competition too.”
