Thoughtful kids raise preschool money

THOUGHTFUL children from Nailsea have helped to raise more than �300 for new equipment following a fire at a town preschool.

Last week the Times reported how an arsonist had destroyed a shed containing books, toys and play equipment at Greenslade Preschool.

Hearing the news, seven-year-old Lauren Pritchard, whose younger brother Joshua attends the Pound Lane play group, decided she wanted to do something to help raise money to replace the lost items.

As a result, the two children and their mum, Karen, were joined by about 18 other children, along with parents and grandparents, to take part in a sponsored walk around Millennium Park on Saturday.

The group raised more than �300, which will be added to the donations already given to the preschool by families and local businesses, including Nailsea-based first aid company South West Medical Services which has given �300.
