CHILDREN at Cam nursery have been a enjoying a day at the beach as well as raising money for charity – without even leaving the building.

In total 24 children and eight staff took part in the event with the young beachcombers getting the chance to make their own train and ticket to whisk them off to the seaside.

Donned in their best beachwear and sunglasses, the children visited the sun-filled playrooms which also had water activities and everyone had the chance to build sandcastles, explore the water and collect shells and rocks.

At lunch time the chef prepared fresh fish with homemade chips and for desert there was ice cream cones.

At the end of the day each of the children made a postcard for their parents or carers with their own pictures, mark making and writing to let them know how their day had been.

The event at Co-operative Childcare in Woodfield raised over £30 for the Teenage Cancer Trust, the nursery’s charity partner for the year.

Deputy manager Katie Mellerup said the day had been a huge success and the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed it.

“We raised much needed funds and awareness for a very worthy cause and certainly had fun while we did it!”
