Fundraising for Rebecca Sargeant’s family
In tragic circumstances our 2019 Vice President, Bec Sargeant lost her life and the life of her baby girl on July 19th. Bec was very passionate about our kindergarten and was a kind, selfless and giving individual. Chelsea Kindergarten reached out to the local community to give donations to help the family that Bec sadly leaves behind. The response was phenomenal. Thanks is not strong enough, our hearts are full with the love the community has shown in such a terrible time for all that knew and loved Bec. She will be greatly missed.
Your donations either money/vouchers or household items have humbled Bec’s family and shown them that we as a community are there for them and want to help.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
