Steps star visits Kids 1st Wynyard for fundraising day

Kids 1st Nurseries held a ‘Dragonfly Day’ on 16 August to raise money for, Josie’s Dragonfly Trust and children and staff at Kids 1st Wynyard were lucky enough to receive a special guest visit from Faye Tozer of Brit Group ‘Steps’.

During their ‘Dragonfly Day’ the children from Kids 1st participated in sponsored toddles, teddy bears picnics and a dancethon to raise money for the charity. All of the children have also made dragonfly penny collectors to collect spare change at home. As a patron of the charity, Faye joined the children at Wynyard to watch their dance performance and to tell them about the charity they were raising money for.

Kids 1st Nurseries are the sponsors of the charity’s third annual Dragonfly Ball on Saturday 7th September.  Set to be a spectacular evening and the biggest event to be held at Close House this year, tickets are now on sale for a night like no other.

Entertainment will be provided by Paul Pashley who will be joined by his swing band and a very special guest as well as other performers, fabulous prizes and plenty Dragonfly Surprises throughout the night. The Dragonfly Ball raises funds to brighten the lives of children and young people living with cancer.

Money raised goes towards providing Cash Gifts and Dragonfly Dreams to the one in three young cancer patients who have no hope of a cure. The charity was set up six years ago by inspirational teenager Josie Grove shortly before she lost her battle with leukemia and has since gone from strength to strength. Josie’s Dragonfly Trust now supports hundreds of children each year in cancer wards across the UK by offering a moment of happiness to create special memories with family and friends.
