Ladybird Nursery in Rainham marked “purple day” last week to raise awareness of epilepsy.
The event, which takes place all over the world on March 26 each year, saw face painting, a cake sale and a purple tea party at the Ryder Gardens pre-school.
It was inspired by Hayden Godwin, a two-year-old who attends the nursery and was diagnosed with the condition last year.
Hayden’s mum Michelle said: “Hayden took all the hospital appointments, waiting around and overnight stays in hospital in his stride. Support from friends, family and Ladybird Nursery helped us out so much.”
She also thanked Nikki Cook, David Godwin, Jill Sweets, Stuart Maynard, Party Delights and Delicious Cupcakes for donating sweets, supplies and cash to the nursery’s purple day – as well as the nursery itself for holding the day.
