When our long standing client, Fisherfield Farm Nursery’s asked Jayne, Sharon and Lucy from our HR team along to the charity Ladies Race Day at Nutters – they “jumped” at the chance!
The event, held on Thursday 18th June 2015 at Nutters Restaurant, Norden, is a themed race day to raise money for the children’s charity NSPCC. It is an amazing day with celebrity chef Andrew Nutter serving up a delicious 4 course meal, followed by a raffle, race cards and best hat competition – The 200 ladies who attended looked beautiful and made a serious effort with their festival of hats and fascinators.
Fisherfield Farm Nursery (www.ffn.co.uk) have been supported by summ.it for 7 years with the HR and Training team supporting their 120+ strong team. The service includes strategic support and training delivered by Jayne, HR Partner, and operational support for the Managers and Employees, being delivered at each site in a mentoring style by Sharon Aspinall and Lucy Cavill, HR Advisors. More recently, they have also moved their accounting over to summ.it as they wanted to receive more regular and visual financial information and this is being delivered mainly by James Lewis, Accountant.
FFN are well established in the Rochdale/Bury areas and have grown their brand over the last decade to today’s 6 nursery settings, 2 out of school clubs and a school holiday club. FFN pride themselves in providing care for children aged 3 months to 11 years which is second to none. Their headline value which is to “inspiring our next generation” is literally at the core of everything they do and their drive for ensuring first class childcare is relentless. Jayne, HR Partner, can speak personally of this as her own son, Eddy, enjoyed a wonderful 3 years at the Norden Nursery before she moved out of the area.
The FFN team have been working hard over the last year to raise funds for their chosen charity, NSPCC, and the Nutters event seemed the perfect opportunity to hand over the very large cheque. The FFN teams’s efforts in 2015 have been the best by far with their combined events such as cake stalls, fun days and fancy dress raising a whooping £13,092 for NSPCC. The Ladies Day at Nutters raised in excess of another £50,000 for the charity.
