Dear friends and family 🙂

It’s that time again!!!!   Basket Brigade 2018 is well underway and its going to be bigger and better than ever ….Iona School is delighted to be hosting this wonderful charity event again this year!

Each family or individual nominated will receive a beautifully wrapped hamper of goodies and a specially selected present from their community, completely unexpectedly and it really gives people a magical festive experience.  The delivering is pretty magical too, so its very much a win/win!

You can be a part of that community Win/Win by donating on the link – and this year there’s a gift aid option too, so we can get the government to donate too!!  that’s Win/Win/Win!!

We have 150 families nominated and our shopping team is ready to go with lists in hand and trollies at the ready!

Anything that you can donate is hugely appreciated and will undoubtedly make a huge difference to this community effort – as ever we are 100% volunteer run, so every penny you donate will go straight to the people in the community who have been nominated to receive a bit of extra love this year.  Donate on this link….. 🙂

The Iona Nursery, Sneinton, Nottingham require a Deputy Nursery Manager

Ideally practical experience of Steiner Principles would be welcome (or a willingness to learn) in order to assist the manager in the aims and ethos of the nursery.

We are committed to safeguarding children and would expect each applicant to share our high standards
