Nursery fundraiser helps asthma kids

Nursery schoolchildren have raised $1,700 for charity Open Airways to help youngsters with asthma.

The pupils from Once Upon a Time Chapter 1 presented a cheque to Open Airways founder Liz Boden this week.

The Hamilton nursery joined other schools and preschools on the fundraising drive as part of World Asthama Week.

“Once Upon a Time Chapter 1 raised more money for Open Airways than any other nursery school on the island during World Asthma week,” said Mrs Boden.

“The donation will be used to help children with asthma to breathe freely. It's a wonderful example of children helping children.”
