Children and colleagues from Bright Horizons nurseries across the UK will take part in a global charity campaign to help raise funds.
Bright Horizons, a leading nursery and employer solutions provider, has announced the launch of a new fundraising campaign Love For A Bright Space, to raise vital funds for its charity The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
Further activities are planned globally on 15 June to celebrate the difference that The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children makes.
The Foundation opened its first Bright Space in the UK in 2005. Bright Spaces are safe, warm and nurturing play areas, specially designed to bring joy and a sense of normality to children facing extremely difficult situations, and they can be found in domestic abuse refuges, homeless shelters, prisons and police stations throughout the UK.
Funds raised through this campaign will support new and existing Bright Spaces. The Foundation expects to open its 100th Bright Space in 2024 further extending its support to more vulnerable children in communities across the UK.
Denise Priest, Trustee and Director of The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, said, “I have been working closely with The Foundation since 2005 and have witnessed first-hand the crucial and transformative role that Bright Spaces can have.
“They help children to heal through the power of play and allow them to experience childhood, at a time when they need it the most, and everyone in the Bright Horizons family is incredibly proud to be a part of The Foundation’s work.
”The 90 Bright Spaces we currently have in the UK make a real impact on children when they are at their most vulnerable. They provide these children and their families with a safe place to play, that is welcoming, comfortable and fun, to help them begin to recover from the trauma of their experiences.”
