The staff of King’s Park Nursery chose both the Down’s and Proud group in Lurgan and the Meningitis Research Foundation to donate money that was raised in lieu of staff Christmas presents.
Both mean a lot to the staff and families of King’s Park.
Rhys Russell is a pupil in the nursery since September 2012 and is a member of the Down’s and Proud group. The group have been a great source of support for Rhys’ mother Ruth since Rhys was born.
Another pupil in the nursery, Ollie Well’s family, are actively involved with the Meningitis Research Foundation and the Leo Tribute Fund. Ollie’s brother Leo was just two years and five months old when he lost his battle with meningococcal septicaemia.
A total of £330 was split between the two local charities.
