We were delighted and astonished to be presented with a cheque for £1415 by the staff of Cranley Nurseries.
Sixteen nursery staff ran a hundred K between them at the Edinburgh Marathon. They were sponsored by the staff and parents of the four Cranley Nurseries in Edinburgh. The nursery parents were inspired by hearing about Home Link and really related to the work that we do with families whose children are the same age as their own.
Karen Murray, Manager of Cranley Nurseries who ran 10k, said: ‘It was a lot of training for the nursery staff, on top of an already demanding job, but it was worth it for the sense of achievement and to help this really amazing charity that make such a difference in families lives’.
Paula Swanston, Home link Family Support’s manager said : ‘The money will help us to make sure that families will get a volunteer who will encourage them, listen to them and help the whole family get involved in learning and play’.
