Doing our bit for charity
At Boys & Girls Nursery we take an active role in the community and like to give a little back hence our love of charitable work and fundraising. We not only encourage all of our team to participate in our company charitable events throughout the year, but also help promote any fundraising activities they are completing outside of work. We take part in both national fundraising campaigns like Children in Need as well as local initiatives.
