Holt Pre-school youngsters are taking on a 5K walk in fancy dress on Saturday 21st November, to raise much-needed funds towards £5,000 for a new building.
The pre-school’s fundraising committee report, “Holt Pre-school is at the heart of our community and loved by all who come into contact with it, but it is in need of help as the much-loved building has reached the end of its life.
“Like many early years settings who have been severely effected by Covid-19, Holt Pre-school is experiencing some trying times and we are committed to helping it out so it can continue to offer its wonderful services for future generations.
“The ultimate goal is to raise £5,000 this year which will go towards the much needed re-build of the current structure on site. A new building would give the children and team a much nicer environment to play and work in and give it a much brighter future.
“So to the task in hand…the children were so inspired by Sir Tom Moore’s efforts during the last lockdown that they too would like to try their hand at their own fundraising challenge.
“During this current lockdown, with their own little (but probably equally slow legs) they will be embarking on a Marathon walk! Well, they only have really teeny legs, so each Holt Pre-school child along with their family will be undertaking 5 kilometres on Saturday 21st November to collectively clock up a marathon and then some. (We will of course be keeping within our own family bubbles, all in accordance with Government guidelines. In true marathon style, everyone will be in fancy dress too!
“Donations are being taken via a justgiving page set up by the fundraising team.
“The pre-schoolers have created a wonderful video in support of their walk https://vimeo.com/480031114/8a992c205e . We challenge anyone not to smile at this!
“So as the song goes “I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more” – well let’s see what these kids are made of!”
