Nursery Staff in Charity Boat Race
Tuesday, 21 August 2012
Staff from Bolton School Nursery finished in 6th place in the Salford Quays Dragon Boat Challenge!
The challenge was between charities ‘Child Flight’ and ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ and Claire Thompson, Amanda Twigley, Sandra Woodbridge, Tracey Cairns and Catherine Manville were part of a team racing for ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’. Out of 29 teams they made the final and not only came away with 6th place raising lots of money for the charity, they also became the Mixed Champions of 2012, receiving medals and a trophy.
Nursery Deputy Manager, Amanda Twigley, said: “It was such a fantastic event and we hope to do it again next year. Our team was called Abbie’s Heroes - the reason being that our good friend and Catering Assistant at the school, has a daughter who suffered from cancer and 'When You Wish Upon a Star' sent the whole family to Florida for Abbie’s Wish. Abbie has now fully recovered and we all wanted to give something back to the charity who really made her wish come true.”
