Cranley Team to run in Edinburgh Marathon Festival for Charity

Edinburgh Marathon Festival Weekend

A team of 12 staff from all 3 nurseries will run the 5k as part of the Edinburgh Marathon Festival weekend. The event takes place on Saturday 24th May in Holyrood Park. Parents are being asked for to sponsor staff with all proceeds being split between 2 charities, one at home and one away.

In addition Karen Murray Group Director will be taking part in the half marathon and is also running in aid of Homelink Family Support. Claire McDonald who works at Craiglockhart will be taking part in the Marathon, also for charity. A busy weekend for all.

Our local Charity is Homelink Family Support. This charity provides a variety of services to families with young children who are under stress or experiencing difficulties. The core element of the service is a high quality befriending service which provides support for the whole family and is based in the family’s home. Volunteer Befrienders are carefully recruited and trained and are then matched with a family to provide focused support to meet the needs of the family. If you would like to read more about them please go to Homelink.

Our charity abroad is Isaiah´s Home of Love in Zimbawe, looking after orphaned children. Cranley Nursery is presently helping to support Brandon a 3 year old boy who was abandoned by his mother. Previously we helped to support Anesu who was later reunited with his mother.
