Toybox Nursery at Coleg Cambria Deeside hosted a Toddle Dash in Deeside Stadium for nursery children and their families in aid of Wales Air Ambulance.

Despite the rain, their spirits weren’t dampened and the children and their parents gave their all. Each child was given a red tshirt and running number and did a warm up dance taught by Netty who teaches Yoga and Zumba in Lifestyle Fitness at Cambria. Wales Air Ambulance mascot, whom the children nicknamed Bradley Bear, was also there to dance with the children.

Three different races took place for the different age groups; Waddlers and Crawlers, Waddlers and Wanderers, and Superfast Sprinters. At the finish line all children were presented with a certificate, medal and a drink.

Nursery Manager, Ann Johnson said, “The event was a huge success; children, parents and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves even though the weather was rather wet!

“We would like to make this an annual event after such a successful turnout and positive feedback.”

The total raised for Wales Air Ambulance so far is over £750 although sponsorship money is still being collected.
