Children's Corner Childcare
Our Nursery Charity is Open Arms Orphanage in Malawi.
We have supported this charity for some years now and have raised several thousands pounds to help the children there.
We have visited the orphanages, so have first hand experience of where our monies raised goes. We have another visit planned for July 2015. We have also sent over supplies for the orphanages that they struggle to find across in Malawi. The yellow highchair shown in the attached photos shows just one of the items we have sent across.
We also support one special little girl at Open Arms named Edina. She has celebral palsy and we have provided her with a walking frame and more recently a bike. These items have helped make her life so much easier. Again there are photos here of Edina.
Each year we organise one big fundraiser which is our Malawi March. This is usually on a Bank holiday in May when we invite all parents and children to join all our staff on a sponsored toddle around Roundhay Park Lake in Leeds. As you can see this has proved very popular and we often stay after the walk for a big picnic. Every one is welcome to join us.
Our Company also donates £1 per month for each family who is registered with our settings. This ensures that we can continue to support the wonderful work being undertaken at Open Arms.
We also donate all commission on any photos taken during the year and other bits and pieces which are raised throughout each year.
Our parents also support the orphanage by donating clothes and equipment that their own children have grown out of. These items are transported across to Open Arms regularly in a container arranged by The Grammar School at Leeds.
