YOUNG children and their parents took part in a day of fun and sport to raise money for a Bucks charity, last week.

The families were invited to the World Cup-themed event at Willow Tree Nursery, in Chapel Road, Flackwell Heath on Friday, August 8.

Everyone involved helped raise £425 for The Thomas Ball Foundation, a charity dedicated to helping children suffering from cancer.

Nursery manager, Melanie Skipp, said: “It was a really good day, a great turnout and the weather held out for us. It was really nice to hold such a lovely family day.

“We would just like to say thank you to all who came and helped on the day.”

As well as the many races on the day, there were also numerous stalls and entertainment and refreshments.
