MEMBERS of a village nursery have raised £2,200 by successfully climbing Mount Snowdon in Wales.

Twelve people, including three children, from Tiny Tots Nursery in Church Lane, Ipstones, completed the trek in five and three quarter hours.

The nursery is trying to raise around £7,000 for a new outdoor play area and surface.

Andrea Bond said: "We went up the PYG track and down the miners path. It was a very challenging day but we all managed to complete it.

"So far we have raised £2,200 and are still waiting for the last lot of sponsor money and donations to come in, but for us to complete the outside area we still need raise another £4,500."

The next fundraising event will be a garden party at the nursery on Saturday July 12 when refreshments, stalls, bouncy castle, fire engine, face painting, pets corner and tombola will be available for visitors to enjoy.

The nursery is also organising a barbecue, raffle and face painting at the Sea Lion Festival in Ipstones on Sunday July 20 to help raise further funds.

If anyone can help the nursery in anyway or donate prizes to sell, or use in a raffle, then get in touch with Andrea Bond 01538 266000.
