Youngsters from Butterflies Day Nursery raise Sport Relief cash

Have your say

The littlest of legs at Vision West Notts toddled a mile for charity on Friday (23rd March).

Dressed in fancy dress costumes, children aged between two and four years of age from the college’s Butterflies Day Nursery ran and walked five times around the college’s football pitch to raise money for Sport Relief 2012.

The event was organised and supervised by activity leadership students and ended an action-packed week of sports and games.

Every day this week the group of 23 students have encouraged fellow learners to take part in other sport-related activities including, a ‘killer’ pool game, who can pot the black ball quickest pool game, five-a-side football, a cross bar challenge and a tug-of-war.

Students who took part in the games were asked to pay a small donation towards Sport Relief.

The students designed the week’s games as part of their NVQ course to demonstrate their organisational and leadership skills.

Student Carl Hartley (17), from Mansfield Woodhouse, said: “It’s been a great week getting students involved in both getting fit and having fun. We’ve really improved our organisational skills as well as communication skills.

“It was interesting tailoring an activity for such a young audience at the day nursery and we were thrilled they had such fun and got involved in raising money for Sport Relief.”
