Sister and mum who created Elsie Ever After officially open garden
Elsie had attended the nursery before she sadly passed away due to a genetic condition.
Her mother Helen went on to start a charity ‘Elsie Ever After’ to support bereaved families.
Helen was awarded the ‘Point of Light’ by David Cameron who said: “Helen is a true Point of Light, despite suffering her own great personal loss, she has devoted her time to invaluable work that has touched the lives of so many people”.The garden was designed by ‘The Cheshire Garden’ with donations made by Bee-Creative designs and Disco Daisy wood carvings.
The Fun Day was a great success, with a variety of activities available for children to participate in such as singing with Music Meg, Diddi Dance, and Forest school activities.
The total sum raised by donations from parents in aid of Elsie Ever After was a fantastic £1,227.Annie Silcock owner of the nursery said “The day was really memorable and despite the weather many parents came to support such a fantastic cause and to see the beautiful garden which will be used every day. Elsie will be remembered always at Smarties.”
