Toybox Nursery has very kindly agreed to hold a Princess & Superhero Day fundraising event to be held on Wednesday 24 January 2018. We would love all children (and staff!) to take part and join in with the fun and help raise vital funds for our charity.

All you have to do is simply let your child come to nursery ready for this themed fundraising event and the nursery staff will do the rest.

We’re asking for a small donation from each child around £2 if possible, which goes to Crackerjacks - registered charity no. 1146586. Even better, you can involve family; friends and work colleagues to sponsor your child using the attached sponsor form or download from: www.crackerjacks.org.uk/downloads.html

Crackerjack’s believes that every child, whatever their needs, has the right to participate fully in their community and to have the same choices, opportunities and experiences as other children; to make local friends, and to access, play, leisure and recreational Facilities,
Crackerjacks was established to help relieve the stress and strains in life that coping with a severe disability can cause.

For full details, please see the attached letter.
