Charitable support is important to us at Little Ladybirds Day Nursery.
It’s our own little way of giving something back and saying thank you to the communities in our catchment area.
We used to select one charity to support throughout the course of a year but now we try to help as many people/organisations as possible.
A recent example is the £2,000-plus we we raised for Billy Marin and his family. Billy has cancer and his mum and dad, Louise and Daniel, are focused on creating as many special memories as possible with their son and their two other children.
After hearing the sad news about Billy from a friend of Little Ladybirds we really wanted to do something special to enable the family to make some memories for Billy and his siblings.
We received fantastic support from parents, families and local businesses who donated over 40 prizes for the raffle, bought tickets and made individual donations. Support also came from our sister nurseries, Clever Clogs in Durham.
