We are delighted to announce that following a staff vote, we can confirm that Minibugs will be supporting the following three charities over the next 12 months:
Minibugs Wincobank, Sheffield – Create a Dream Foundation. A charity set up to help seriously ill children and young people in the Sheffield and South Yorkshire region.
Minibugs St Austell – Sands (Stillbirth and neonatal death charity). Supporting anyone affected by the death of a baby, improving the bereavement care received by parents and families and promoting research to reduce the number of babies dying.
Minibugs Liskeard – Ellie’s Haven. A Cornwall charity providing holidays to families caring for children with long term and life limiting medical conditions and disabilities.
Our nursery teams felt it was important to support local charities as many of our families will be aware of the important work that these charities do and how our support would mean so much to them. Some of our families have themselves been supported at some point by the charities we have chosen to fundraise for.
Marina Guido, Managing Director of Minibugs Nurseries, said “I’m extremely proud of our Minibugs teams for choosing to support such worthy causes. I feel it’s so important to help children and families who need some extra support to deal with whatever challenges life has given them. I look forward to seeing what fundraising activities and events our teams come up with for our children and families to get involved with”
