BIG-hearted toddlers at Halesowen College nursery are raising money to support homeless children over Christmas.

The young fundraisers, their parents and staff are making donations to the charity Shelter instead of sending Christmas cards this year.

Hazel Hill, nursery supervisor, said: “We thought this was a great way to support the work of Shelter as many children are due to be homeless this Christmas.

“The children love to get involved in any fundraising by either dressing up or making things and it is great that our donations will be going to such a good cause.”

The youngsters have also raised more than £100 for Children in Need by selling cakes.
