YOUNGSTERS at a Portsmouth nursery have pledged their support for a children’s charity.

Busy Bees Day Nursery at the North Harbour Business Park has announced its sponsored charity for 2011 is Save the Children.

The nursery will be holding various fundraising events for the charity throughout the year, including quiz and curry nights for parents and summer fetes, as well as Children in Need’s Born to Party event to celebrate the Royal wedding.

Nursery manager Helen Tucker said: ‘All the events we are organising for Save the Children are designed to be fun for the children at the nursery, while at the same time raise as much money as we can for the charity.

‘All the children at Busy Bees are looked after and receive lots of love and care but, unfortunately, this isn’t the case for every child.

‘We are really pleased we are able to give something to those children less fortunate.’

The Save the Children charity campaigns and raises money for children around the world who need support and resources.

Their focus this year is on raising funds for life-saving drugs and vaccinations, as well as skilled midwives and health workers, helping mothers and babies to stay save and well.
