Going, going, gone!

This week nursery children from Kids 1st Quorum are celebrating after raising £767 for The Children’s Foundation in a special art auction held at the nursery.

Children and staff raised the money for the North East children’s charity by creating miniature pieces of art that were put up for auction in the nursery on the 8 July 2010.

Andrea Venters, Nursery Manager, is absolutely delighted with the money that has been raised. She said: “This is the second auction of this kind that we have held at Kids 1st Quorum, not only does the money raised go to a good cause but it also encourages our children to learn about the world around them, whilst having fun of course!”

“Abi Tasker, the Deputy Manager, has been the driving force behind this event and after the success of last year’s auction we wanted to make this year’s bigger and better.”

To supplement the art work the nursery also auctioned off prizes that were kindly donated by parents, including a complimentary night’s stay at The Copthorne Hotel, a professional photography session and a make-up lesson at MAC.

Family and friends of Kids 1st Quorum were all present and were treated to a selection of canapés prepared by the nursery’s chefs.
