Children at a city nursery have been getting into sporty gear to help raise funds for a charity.
Sport Relief, which takes place today (Friday) was created to harness the power of sport – that passion – and raise money to help people who need it the most, no matter where they are – in the UK and around the world.
For Sport Relief, staff at Chichester Nursery School held a special aerobics session, led by some of the nursery staff.
Children turned up to the nursery in St James’s Road on Wednesday wearing sporty gear, had lots of fun and promoted being active for a great cause.
Sport Relief works to find the best, most effective organisations here in the UK and around the world which are taking on the issues of mental health, child poverty, domestic abuse and helping people have a safe place to live.
And when they find these organisations, they invest in them and their work.
The staff, children and some of their parents at Chichester Nursery School marked Sport Relief with the fun aerobics session in the nursery garden.
Three of the nursery school staff led the action, ensuring everyone was taken through a good warm-up first. The children enjoyed following a range of different movements and there were many giggles, as they were required to stand up and sit down several times in one of their favourite songs!
The session was rounded off with a lively rendition of the popular Baby Shark which was a hit with the adults and children alike.
“It was a great way of raising money for a great cause and everyone having some fun together,” said headteacher Ruth Campbell.
“We were delighted that the parents got involved.”
Since the previous Sport Relief in 2018, the charity has invested £82 million to support people living tough lives in the UK and around the world.
