Community’s generosity overwhelms Exning pre-school




Stepping Stones Pre-School are gearing up to deliver Christmas hampers after their second Community Kindness appeal saw them overwhelmed with donations.

The Exning nursery decided last year that it would be nice for their young pupils to give rather than receive so the usual gifts from staff to youngsters were replaced with hampers from the pre-school to people in the community.

“It was a great success but this year we have been overwhelmed not just with donations from people connected to Stepping Stones but other random people whose names we don’t even know,” said manager Sarah Thompson. “We would like to thank them all for their generosity.”

The hampers will be going out to families who need a helping hand at Christmas and also to people who have been nominated as deserving a festive reward for good deeds within the community including the two village ‘keepers’.

One extra large hamper will be delivered to residents at Exning Court and another will go to the family of ten-year-old Evelina Kravale who is recovering after she was seriously injured in an accident on her way home from school in November.
