Youngsters from Alderley Edge School for Girls Preparatory School (AESG) had great fun in their bunny hop event to support East Cheshire NHS Charity (formerly ECHO), the charity of East Cheshire NHS Trust. The event which raised over £100 at the end of April involved children, all under the age of 11, in hopping challenges whilst wearing bunny ears which they designed.
Tris Marchington, Deputy Head (Prep), said “During April, AESG Prep School were proud to support East Cheshire NHS Charity by taking part in the Easter Bunny Hop. It was a fantastic opportunity for our girls to get outside, get active and help raise money for our local NHS charity. The girls had a brilliant time and all for a good cause. A big thank you to everyone who contributed.”
Alongside AESG, Kids Allowed Macclesfield and Nursery Rhymes Nursery have taken part in East Cheshire NHS Charity’s first ever bunny hop event, paving the way for more schools and nurseries to take part next year. Everyone that signed up received a fundraising pack which included bunny ear templates that children can cut out and design, sponsorship forms and different hopping challenges.
Lily Preston, Fundraising and Events Manager at East Cheshire NHS Charity said, “Thank you to AESG prep for taking part in this year’s Bunny Hop event and to all the families and friends who sponsored the children. It’s great to see local schools taking part in fundraising events and supporting their local NHS charity.”
Money raised by East Cheshire NHS Charity helps support East Cheshire NHS Trust go the extra mile in providing funding for enhanced facilities, state-of-the-art medical equipment and all the added extras that make people’s experience at Macclesfield District General Hospital, Knutsford Community Hospital, Congleton War Memorial Hospital and within our community services the best it can be.
