The nature area features new pathways, wooden sculptures and seating areas – ideal for woodland walks, open-air storytelling and bush craft!

Pete’s Trans Moroccan Bike Ride Fundraiser – April 2019

Pete came back again with a new mountain riding challenge to help us fundraise…

In April he rode 565 Km/350 mile in 10 Day in a Trans Morocco cycle ride. He will be rode across the high Atlas Mountains from North to South, crossing high mountain passes (2800), dessert sand dunes, gorges and the volcanic Saghro Mountains. The ride involved a total altitude gain: 7.100Mtr/23,300 feet.

Pete raised – £900+ that will be used to support our Youth Engagement Teams early intervention and support work with young people experiencing Mental Health issues such as: anxiety attacks, depression, anger management, self-harming, bullying, peer pressure, substance misuse, relationship breakdowns, and bereavement.

A HUGE thanks to Pete

10K Sponsored Run

On the 24th March 2019 Eloisa Broadbent, our Nursery Manager, will be participating in the Hendy Eastleigh 10K run. After recovering from her recent operations Eloisa wants to inspire that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Keeping active is very important to Eloisa and doing this event will show that excuses are not an option.

To mark the 5th anniversary of Poppins Nursery a refurbishment of the outdoor play area will enhance the children’s experiences whilst promoting physical development. The fundraising from the Eastleigh 10K run will contribute to develop this project.

To make a donation and support Eloisa, please visit:

As part of this the Nursery hosted a 10K Coffee Morningand Cake Sale  today to promote the race and raise additional funds. People’s generosity and love of cake brought in an additional £60 to add to the rising fundraising total!
