CHILDREN from Ely's Rainbow pre-school raised money for the NSPCC by taking part in a sponsored Wheelie Event.
The Wheelie Event involved youngsters, between the ages of three and four, pushing or riding wheeled toys for five laps of a circuit, and more than 100 nurseries and 4000 children across the Eastern region took part.
Manager and play leader of Rainbow Pre-school, Juliet Porter, said: "The children really enjoyed it, especially the cheers from the other children. They also thought it was great that they are helping to make sad children happy."
This is the third time that the Rainbow Pre-school has taken part in the wheelie event, last year they raised more than £900, and the money raised from this year's effort is still to be counted. The money will go directly towards funding 25 projects to be undertaken by the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children. It will also build the foundations of the NSPCC Full Stop Campaign.
