Bright Horizons Raises Over £1500 to Support Vulnerable Children

December 4, 2023

Employees at Bright Horizons across the UK held their own festival themed day named ‘FUNdation Day’ and raised just over £1,500 for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.

Bright Horizons colleagues, families and around 300 of their nurseries came together for a festival themed fundraiser which coincided with ‘Giving Tuesday’. Their aim was to fundraise to be able to implement more Bright Spaces in domestic abuse refuges, homeless shelters, prison visits halls and child protection suites in police stations.

The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, Bright Horizons’ registered charity, is focused on improving the lives of vulnerable children and families experiencing crisis and disadvantage. Its Bright Spaces are enriching play environments for children impacted by domestic violence, abuse, homelessness, parental imprisonment, and ill health, and are designed to help children heal from trauma through play.

Some of the different activities that took place on the day to raise money for the important cause were playing music and dancing, bake sales, and creating a festival atmosphere by making festival wrist bands, passes, posters and bunting across Bright Horizons settings.

Emily, Social Impact Manager at Bright Horizons said: “I was thrilled to see so many of our Bright Horizons colleagues come together to celebrate and have fun all for a good cause. The work the Foundation has been doing so far this year making Bright Spaces has made a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children who need support and comfort. Trauma in childhood affects children’s physical, emotional and intellectual growth, and development. We are so proud of Bright Horizons nurseries that dedicated time and donated to continue the work of the Foundation.”

The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children will be opening its 100th Bright Space in 2024 further extending its support to more vulnerable children in communities across the UK.
