Welcome to Carousel Nursery

Coursel Nurseries Logo


We often organise events which allow us to fundraise for good causes. Recent fundraising efforts have included Family Fun Days, a Family Race Night, Cake Sale, Welly Walk and Big Toddle. We are always delighted and overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents, families and friends who support these events, which are a fun way to get together, alongside raising money for local and national charities. If you have a particular charity you would like us to consider when organising our next fundraising initiative, please let us know. We are always happy to learn more about charities, some of which are small and relatively unknown, but are close to the hearts of the families and friends who we meet through Nursery


Barnado’s Big Toddle

A national event comprising of a short sponsored walk for children aged 0-5, which raises money for Barnado’s under 5’s projects. All the money raised helps to transform the lives of disadvantaged children under the age of 5 including those who suffer from disabilities, live in poverty, or who need help overcoming a traumatic experience, like losing a parent.


Welly Walk

Welly Walk is a nationwide initiative to encourage people to fundraise for a good cause, while having fun in the outdoors. The events can be organised as a sponsored walk, hence the welly requirements, and all age groups are welcome to participate. It is a great way to get together and raise money for a worthy cause, generating publicity and support to the organisation.


World Vision

World Vision Child Sponsorship provides support to children in some of the world’s poorest countries. By providing sponsorship of as little as 75p per day, children can be supported in a variety of ways including;

  • Child Protection
  • Food Security
  • Clean, Safe Water
  • Healthcare
  • Education
  • Care for HIV and Aids


CHAS is a charity that provides the only hospice service in Scotland for children and young people who have life shortening conditions for which there is no known cure. CHAS runs two children’s hospices, Rachel House in Kinross and Robin House in Balloch and a home care service called CHAS at Home. Every day it costs £25000.00 to run CHAS care services, therefore donations are crucial in ensuring the families who need help and support have access to care throughout the year.


Help for Heroes

This charity provides a national network of support for our wounded servicemen and women serving in the Armed Forces, and their families. This support can come in the form of the QRF (Quick Reaction Fund), which can provide funds to pay for equipment to make a home more accessible, or pay for travel costs for family members to travel to their loved one. It helps to pay for the costs involved, running four recovery centres across the UK, which provide invaluable support to injured personnel and their families, and supports other service charities, linked to the future wellbeing of the servicemen and women who have suffered life changing injuries.


The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund

The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Children’s Fund is the only charity dedicated to supporting children whose parents work, or have worked, for the Naval Service.
The needs of the children are paramount and help is provided when not available from family or statutory sources.


MacMillan Coffee Morning / Cake Sale

The MacMillan Coffee Morning / Cake Sale is the biggest fundraising event in their calendar with a record 15 million pounds raised in 2012. The fundraising efforts are put to good use, ensuring everyone who is facing cancer doesn’t have to go through It alone. MacMillan Nurses support families through cancer from diagnosis, through treatment and afterwards.


Nathan’s Wastesavers / Rag Bag Appeal

The Rag Bag scheme has been developed to provide regular fundraising for schools and nurseries, throughout the UK, while donating clothing and textiles to children and families in Africa. The unwanted clothing is donated either through a Rag Bag collection day, or by placing into items into a Rag Bag bank which is regularly emptied. The team t Nathan’s Wastesavers sort the donations into categories and all items are reused, whether these are recycled as they are, or remodelled into cleaning cloths. The scheme pays 50 pence per kilogram, which is a superb way to raise funds, alongside helping a good cause.



From life-saving emergency responses to life-changing development projects and campaigning, our amazing supporters help make all this possible. Oxfam are winning the fight against poverty every day and not a penny is wasted.
