A TEST Valley-based pre-school is holding a sponsored bounce today (Friday).

Cash raised by Little Saints will go towards Sports Aid and the pre-school which is based at All Saints Church Hall in North Baddesley.

Deputy pre-school practitioner Belinda Vincent said: “We hope to raise as much as we can for Sports Aid and our pre-school. A bouncy castle has been provided free of charge by King of the Castle is providing a bouncy castle free of charge for us and we will be doing the bounce all day.

"The money raised for the pre-school will go towards renovating our garden area. We want to put in some raised beds so that the children can do some gardening and we also need to replace the children's play house which is dilapidated. It's all going to cost around £800.”

The pre-school's current garden has a paved and grassed area with stepping stones, sand and water, said Belinda, who added the pre-school plans to landscape the outdoor area to make it more attractive for the children.
