Fairies & Elves Short Story Book in support of Sands!

All of our Pre-School Children here at Bright Beginnings Falkirk have contributed to a Fairies & Elves Short Story Book in support of Sands!

Here is one of the stories below:

“Once upon a time there was a wee fairy. The fairy saw a big pumpkin and she saw an elf inside the pumpkin. A big giant came along and the elf and the fairy were scared, but the giant was very friendly and said “can I be friends with you?” The fairy said “yes, you can be our friend” and the fairy, the elf and the giant became best friends and played with each other every day and lived happily ever after.”

Fairy & Elf Picnic in support of Sands, 18th – 22nd May

In support of Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Society) we have the following activities planned for all our families from the 18th – 22nd May.

The staff team wish to give an exciting introduction to fundraising while our children participate in a variety of play activities. This helps us in our goal to teach children in our care to be responsible citizens and effective contributors, making the world a better place.

We are very proud to have the opportunity to raise awareness for this fantastic and very worthy cause. Sands supports anyone who has been affected by the death of a baby before, during or shortly after birth. They offer emotional support and information for parents, grandparents, siblings, children, families and friends, health professionals and others.
