Rosedene Nurseries Kader, in Acklam, received a welcome visit from a very special guest on Wednesday last week.
Pudsey Bear popped in to have his picture taken with the children and to thank them in advance for their fund-raising efforts for the BBC Children in Need appeal.
Since 1980 Children in Need has raised over £600 million for disabled children and young people in the UK. With over 60 years of operation in Tees Valley and North Yorkshire, Rosedene are delighted to be able to say that children from their settings have been supporting this amazing fundraising effort since its’ very first year.
Rosedene Nurseries have settings with a geographical spread from Northallerton to Billingham and Darlington to Saltburn, and all will be raising money for this great cause. In spotty or yellow fancy dress the nurseries have a variety of exciting activities arranged including an all-day sing-a-thon, decorating cookies and painting a giant Pudsey Bear!
