For the month of December everyone at Linwood Community Childcare is encouraged to get into the eco-friendly spirit.
Manager Julie Hughes explains:
â€śWe gained our Eco Schools Green Flag Award last September.Â In the past, our children were giving all their friends Christmas cards which ended up left in their trays.Â By doing this our nursery children can help the school meet the criteria to be an eco school.
â€śParents then donated their Christmas card money to aÂ good cause in our local community. After one of our parents died aged 27 leaving two young children we like to support St Vincent Hospiceâ€™s counselling service for children and young adultsÂ when we can.â€ť
