26/11/2018 10:40

Children in Need 2018.....exceeded all expectations, resulting in Kerry, Megan, Summer & Ellie being invited to appear Live on BBC news & Children in Need on the night of 16th November from the i360 tower in Brighton. We had a fantastic evening, meeting Pudsey himself and telling people of the importance of raising funds for sick children and their families. Club 4 Kids Childcare raised a staggering amount of £2636.11 after final count and if this brings as many memories, smiles, excitement and joy to the Children in need as it did to us then every sleepless night was worth it.  This year Megan started preparing for an early launch with a fantastic Quiz night on 9th November 2018 (1st ever which was pretty scary), alone raising £577.  Staff, Parents and friends dressed in PJ`s for the night and so much fun was had with a few games thrown in for good measure.  `Los Ganadores` team were the winners and `In it for the Wooden Spoon` were the proud losers.....who would of guessed such appropriate names. Video footage of the Quiz was shown on the BBC lunchtime news spot on 16th November !!    Things just got better with local businesses supporting by donating prizes (list below) and we even had a star prize of a BUNGEE JUMP donated by    All in all there were 143 prizes                                                                              For the week of Children in Need 12 - 16 November .......Staff got busily baking, (often up till midnight) for our sell out cake sales, some parents donated prizes, Claire Sears (parent) spent hours emailing companies for prizes and Claire Boraston (parent) sold items to work colleagues / friends and also baked tasty treats for us to sell. We also had lucky dips, `Guess how many sweets in a jar`, personalised merchandise for sale as well as other actitivtes. Each year we get bigger and better but as we are such a small family run setting it is getting more challenging to raise so much. If you have any challenges you feel we can try or if you feel you can support us in any way, please `step forward` and let us know. We love a challenge if it means raising more for all those deserving children who face challenges every day of their lives !!                                                                                                                                                                                     We would like to THANK each and every sponsor listed below.  We also publish a list of sponsors and prize winners on our facebook page : club 4 kids childcare.                                                                                                                                  Sponsors: WAHL         Big Fun House          Jungle Jims          Ocassions (Herne Bay)          Keel Toys          The Studio      Bundle of Books          Taylor Meats          County Solicitors          Kavanagh Cinema          Victorias Health & Beauty        Little Music Stars          Bay Leaf coffee shop          Bon Bon cakes          Grovewell garden centre          The Rising Sun     Hornby visitor centre          Kings Hall          Timpson/Max Spielmann          Toby Carvery          Canterbury Cathedral      Shoe Zone          Vincent Nurseries          Red Letter days          Michelle Killick          Swagga dance academy          L`Oreal          MaKCaris          Mecca Bingo         Vintage fair          Rare Breeds Centre         Partners Hair Studio          Jellyfish Photography          Dream Academy          iFun mini golf          Hippodrome          Gulbenkian Cinema           Salsa Asi         The Pound          Hat Hats coffee          Herne Bay Personal Training          Jess Elvidge                      Theatre Royal Margate.......
