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.
