On Saturday (21/11), Great Lever Children’s Centre will hold their annual winter fair in partnership with Great Lever Nursery.
A huge range of activities including tombola, raffles, a puppet show and Santa’s Grotto will raise money, which will be spent on Christmas presents for vulnerable children both at the nursery and within the local community.
The fair will also host a sale of clothes, toys and books donated by parents of children at the centre in an extra effort to raise cash.
Last year the centre’s fair raised nearly £700, as more than 500 people came to join in the fun and raise as much money as possible.
The fun lasts from 11.00am until 3.00pm, with an entrance fee of 50p for adults, while children can go for free.
Councillor Ebrahim Adia, Executive Member for Children’s Services at Bolton Council, said: “There will be so much going on at the fair this weekend, and all the money raised will be going to a really good cause.
“I hope as many people as possible head down to Great Lever to see for themselves the great work that our children’s centres do for the local community.”
Great Lever Children’s Centre is run by Bolton Council and funded by Sure Start – a government initiative that aims to give children the best possible start in life through improving childcare, early education, health and family support, with an emphasis on outreach and community development.
