Pitt Town Early Learning Centre superhero day raises money for Bear Cottage

LAST week the children at Pitt Town Early Learning Centre participated in 'superhero week', raising much-needed funds for Bear Cottage.

Centre manager at Pitt Town Early Learning Centre, Catherine Magazzu, said the centre was very fortunate to be a part of such a "beautiful, supportive community".

"Together we did our part for Bear Cottage in efforts to help families and children that require respite and end-of-life care in their home away from home," Ms Magazzu said.

"Pitt Town Early Learning Centre definitely showcased their superhero capes throughout the week, much love and hard work went into children dressing up and being trooper superheroes."

Over the week, the Pitt Town Early Learning Centre community raised $3,172, which Ms Magazzu said was "a huge overwhelming response by our centre and community."

Bear Cottage is the only children's hospice in NSW, providing respite and end-of-life care for children with terminal illnesses and their families in a medically-supported 'home away from home' environment.

For children in their care, there is no happy ending or miracle cure, and Bear Cottage gives them as much love, care, laughter, fun, and support, as they need.
