NURSERY children and their families held a fundraising fun day to help pay for equipment for one of their toddlers who suffers from Cerebral Palsy.
Daisy-May Severn (4) goes to Little Treasures nursery in Haverfield Road, Spalding and has been unable to start school in September because she does not have the equipment she needs to help her.
She will now be staying on at Little Treasures and the nursery put on a fun day so they could buy some extra equipment to help her until she’s able to move on to school.
Despite wet weather the nursery managed to put on a a series of games, a tombola, cake stall, lucky dip, face painting, ‘guess the member of staff from the baby photo’ and a raffle with a host of prizes donated by firms in the town.
The day helped to raise £200 and will go towards sensory toys and specialist equipment to help Daisy-May’s development.
Little Treasures manager Rebecca Genever said: “She really is a lovely little girl. She’s been coming here for a year and Joanne Yews is her special additional needs workers and works one to one with her.
“We make sure we are getting all the outside help for her – we have been quite part of the family.
“It is an unusual situation but we want to make sure Daisy-May is not missing out. She has got quite complex needs but she’s lovely, the children and everyone here love having her around.”
Daisy-May may not be able to move on to school until next September and Little Treasures may hold a similar event at Christmas for further equipment if that is the case.
Rebecca added: “We didn’t have nice weather but we were so pleased that people still came along and supported it.”
