A NURSERY and after school club have developed a link with a foster home in Ghana.

Green Lane Nursery and Playdays Ltd have teamed together to raise over £800 for Marfo Children’s Care Foundation.

The foundation is a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing family-based homes to orphans in Ghana.

Children at the nursery took part in a sponsored toddle round the park, while the after school club held a fundraising evening with a tombola, cake sale and sponsored head shave.

Staff members Kim Lomas and Andy O’Connor are set to visit Ghana this week to deliver the cheque as well as toys and gifts donated by parents and staff.

The children aim to keep in contact through monthly pictures and emails and hope to continue raising money.
