Christmas Market Raising Funds for Local Children’s Charity

Mama Bear’s Day Nursery and Pre-school in Bradley Stoke is hosting its’ first-ever Christmas market on Saturday 3rd December to raise money for a South Gloucestershire organisation that supports one of its young children.  The nursery is throwing open its doors to stallholders selling jewellery, Christmas decorations, prints, crafts and ceramics in aid of Thornbury-based charity Jigsaw that supports families and children with additional needs.

The event, which runs from 11am-3pm, will also include festive food and hot chocolate, and children’s games and themed activities, not to mention the chance to meet ‘Santa’ himself in his winter wonderland grotto.

Two-and-a-half-year-old Ollie Gould, who has Down’s Syndrome and attends the nursery in Great Park Road, is supported by Jigsaw who run weekly support groups, holiday activities and social and special needs events in the area.  Kat Payne, nursery manager, said: “Jigsaw is very close to our hearts due to their continued support for young Ollie and his family and other families like him in the area. They do a great job and want to raise as much money as we can for them.”

Family-run Mama Bear’s Day Nurseries provide care for children from three months to five years with 22 settings across Bristol, Somerset and Devon.

Mama Bear’s Day Nursery is a family-run business with its offices in Hanham, Bristol. The Day Nurseries are aimed at providing children with their first vital level of education to give them a head-start when they start at primary school.
