Crazy socks were on show at a nursery in Windsor as children and staff held a fundraiser to increase awareness of Down’s syndrome.
The Lawns Nursery School and Pre-Nursery School, in Imperial Road, held its ‘Lots of Socks’ event to raise money for Chattertots, a speech and language therapy group which supports pre-schoolers with the condition.
The day was inspired by a four-year-old at the nursery who has Down’s syndrome.
Children wore long, odd and multi-coloured socks while some even made necklaces out of them and used them to tie up their hair.
The event raised about £100 for Chattertots, with children and staff turning out in force.
The Lawns Pre-Nursery School has recently expanded so it now caters for children aged two to four.
The event took place on Thursday, May 26.
