Nursery’s festive fun raises £2,000

Keynsham families helped a local nursery raise £2,000 to support the Royal United Hospital’s Forever Friends Appeal. Snapdragons winter wonderland

Snapdragons, which opened a branch at Ellsbridge House, Bath Road, in September, welcomed youngsters from across the area to its fourth annual Winter Wonderland in Weston, Bath.

There they met Father Christmas in his grotto while families browsed stalls and enjoyed festive treats. Local firms also donated prizes for the event to help raise funds.

Forever Friends fundraiser Zoe Tainton collected the cheque for £2,000 and said: “Snapdragons have been loyal supporters of the Forever Friends Appeal, helping us over the past 12 years. They went through great efforts to organise such a fabulous event and we really appreciate their help.

“On behalf of everyone here at the Forever Friends Appeal, we would like to give a huge thanks to the staff, parents and even the smallest babies at all the Snapdragons nurseries for their very generous gift of £2,000 towards the new Cancer Centre at the RUH.”

Owner of Snapdragons Rosemary Collard said: “Snapdragons cares for hundreds of local children, many of whom along with their parents and the nursery staff, have personal experience of the RUH, especially the maternity and neonatal care.

“It’s great for us to be able to give something back to the hospital in recognition of the fantastic care they provide.”
