Enterprise Week

Enterprise Week Nursery 2017

Our charity will be Borehamwood Food Bank.

Borehamwood Food Bank is based at St Teresa’s Parish Centre, 291 Shenley Road & is open Mondays 1-3.30pm & Thursdays 10am-12.30pm. It is run by a whole wealth of Volunteers from the Borehamwood area and is supported by local businesses and local people who donate non perishable items to give to local people in crisis.

Items in particular demand are: Milk (UHT or powdered) ,sugar, carton fruit Juice, soup, pasta sauces, tinned sponge puddings, tinned tomatoes, cereals, tinned rice pudding, tea bags & instant coffee, instant mash potato, rice & pasta, tinned meat & fish, tinned fruit, jam, biscuits & snack bars.

This year Nursery will be joining in with the school's Enterprise Week. This is the week after the May half term ( Tuesday 6th - Friday 9th June 2017) . The children will be given £20 to plan, make and sell items to raise money for a charity of their choice. As we supported Fr Dominic and the Borehamwood food bank for Harvest, we have decided to raise money for them.

Our plan is to sow sunflowers in lovely pots , make small clay pots and decorate them so they can be used to store useful things, decorate gingerbread men so they look delicious to eat, make tissue paper flowers and make oat and raisin cookies again. On Friday 9th June at 11.00 am the nursery will open  its doors to family and friends to come and buy our wonderful products. All profits will be used to make a shopping list and buy the food that they need for the food bank. Fr Dominic will come and bless the food and take it back to his food bank so it can be given to families who need a little help.
