Nursery makes donation to children’s ward

Angels Day Nursery of Kettering has donated 20 toiletry bags to Kettering General Hospital’s Skylark children’s ward, for parents who stay overnight with their children unexpectedly.

The bags, 10 male and 10 female, each contain a selection of essential travel size toiletries to make a parent feel more comfortable during their stay.

Simeon Singer, owner of Angels Day Nursery, said: “I know from experience of working with children and parents, and being a parent myself, that when a child becomes ill and is treated in hospital, it can be an anxious time."

“We wanted to do something that would go some way to supporting parents of young children in our community.”

Play co-ordinator on Skylark Ward, Trish Brigden, said: “This is a very thoughtful and much appreciated donation to Kettering General Hospital.

“The Skylark Ward team all work very closely with families at what can be difficult and worrying time for them. Helping parents to comfortably stay alongside their children overnight is very important to children. We want to thank Angels Day Nursery very much indeed for their help with this.”

Angels Day Nursery caters for children between the ages of 0-4 and is currently taking bookings for September 2017, ahead of the Government’s 30 hour funding for three and four-year-olds coming into force. To book a show around appointment, call 01536 519926 or email
