A Glossop nursery held an exciting ‘Big Pink Weekend’ that saw families going on a scavenger hunt around a local park.

Little Stars Private Day Nursery, on Hadfield Road in Glossop, held the exciting event on Friday October 14 and Saturday October 15, to raise funds for the charity Breast Cancer Care.

On the Friday, the children at Little Stars – which provides high-quality childcare for children in Glossop aged five and under – wore bright pink clothing and took part in lots of fun fundraising activities involving pink jelly, foam, pasta and plenty of pink paint.

The children also rolled up their sleeves and baked delicious pink cakes and biscuits to go on sale at the scavenger hunt the following day.

Around 40 people turned up at the park on Chapel Lane, Hadfield on the Saturday morning, where they were set the exciting task of finding pink photo props hidden around the area.

Pink feather bowers, novelty glasses, lips, wigs and moustaches were cleverly concealed around the park, waiting to be discovered by the local children and their families.

After scouring the park for as many props as possible, the parents and children rushed back to the nursery to go head-to-head in a ‘Best Family Photo’ competition in a fun photo booth.

The Nursery, Manager Liz Moss said: “The children and their families had a great time running around the park and taking funny photos. It was lovely to see so many families coming together in support of this wonderful cause.

“In total, we raised £85.81 for Breast Cancer Care thanks to the generosity of the community and the children’s brilliant cake baking skills. We’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who took part!”
