A barbecue, cake sale, pick-and-mix stall and raffle were held and a pop-up beauty parlour opened for the afternoon.

Nursery manager Cath Turner said: ‘We had a fantastic day and are delighted that we managed to raise so much money for this amazing cause.

‘A big thank you to all of the families who made this possible by coming along and joining in the fun.’

All money raised on the day will go to Home-Start, which provides support in making a difference to the lives of vulnerable children from an early age until they become young adults.

The charity has volunteers based at 300 centres around the UK and have a total of 11 centres across Hampshire, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.
