Millfield Nursery is located in Cropwell Butler, Nottinghamshire.
It is a ‘younger sister’ to Colston Bassett School in the same area, which Jean and Dave have visited on several occasions to talk to the primary age children about the Aquinoe Learning Centre in Kenya. Pupils, staff and parents at Colston Bassett have raised significant sums of money for Aquinoe.
Millfield is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary.
Liz and John, who run the school, decided to have an “Africa Week” with the children, and to do some fundraising. Aquinoe is lucky enough to be a beneficiary.
Jean talked to ten four-year olds who will be moving on to primary school in September.
She showed them photos of the school and the pupils in 2004, contrasting them with the current situation.
The boys and girls were able to see what a difference the charity has made at Aquinoe, for instance, the old and new buildings.
The session finished with the pupils playing Kenyan musical instruments while singing nursery rhymes!
