IN line with its work on promoting fundamental British values, Corwen Day Nursery teaches the children about the work of charities.

The nursery now supports four charities, with UNICEF having been recently added.

Corwen Day Nursery has purchased Paddington’s Postcards and each month, the children will receive a postcard from Paddington from a different country telling them about what life is like for the children living in that country.

Carmen Roberts Davenport, owner of Corwren Day Nursery, said: “I felt it was apt for us to support UNICEF due to them helping children around the world and we actually already have a Paddington display in our foyer at nursery.

“All children love to receive letters in the post, and this is great way for our children to learn about the world and by supporting UNICEF we are helping children around the world and giving them hope for the future.”

Through Action Aid, the nursery sponsors three children abroad who are desperate for their help and this money changes children’s lives for good.

Corwen Day Nursery also supports Hope House in Oswestry, which cares for children with serious conditions who aren’t expected to live longer than early adulthood.

The nursery collects items from its customers for Hope House to sell in their shops and the staff take part in the 10-mile annual Llangollen canal walk in March each year and they enter the weekly Hope House Lottery.

The nursery also writes and sends goodie boxes to troops on deployment as an act of kindness.

The parcels are seen as a valuable contribution in boosting and maintaining morale amongst those on overseas duties and are much appreciated by members of the Armed Forces.

The children love the visit from the Welsh Guards each November, who thank the nursery for the goodie boxes that are sent throughout the year.

Nursery children have enjoyed receiving personal letters of thanks from some of the soldiers who received their goody boxes.
