A great big thank you to all of you Super Hero’s out there who supported the JDRF charity day last Wednesday at Preschool. With your support we raised an amazing £100.05 .
The children had great fun day taking on the role as superheros, flying around, painting shields, making superhero characters, decorating cakes and biscuits, saving their friends, creating capes and den building.
The children also enjoyed meeting and looking after our guests, Olivia and Kangaroo who were diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic when they were 12 years old. The children listened intently about Olivia and Kangaroos daily routine and how they wear a special pump box to supply Insulin medicine through their wire and how they need to weigh all of their food, as without these things they can become very ill. The children also asked their own questions to Olivia and Kanga, listening attentively to their responses.
We were amazed how the Preschoolers as young as 2 years old, remembered throughout the day to check to make sure Olivia & Kangaroo were ok, making sure they were well and taking their medicine by reminding Laura to check on them regularly throughout the day.
All of the preschool children were very kind and caring and demonstrated this through their actions and thoughts during our day.
What a great day we had Superheros!!!
Thank-you again for your very kind donations and efforts throughout the day .
