Chris Bryant, Founder and Director of Munchkins Day Nursery, has been a supporter and player at Isca Hockey Club for over 22 years and has stepped down this year as a player, albeit at the tender age of 38!
Chris has been looking at ways to support the Club in its Centenary Year, especially the Junior section, and has used his business Munchkins Day Nursery to offer an incredible "once-in-a-lifetime" free place. This was auctioned and Chris has very generously donated £10,000 to Isca Hockey Club.
This superb donation will provide finance for coaches to not only help the Isca juniors, but to enable the coaches to visit local schools to help develop hockey, as well as an array of other things.
Chris came up with the idea of opening a childcare establishment in 2003 and after 2 years of research, ticking boxes and hurdling red tape Chris finally opened Munchkins in January 2005 with great support from his brother Paul and his Nursery manager Kate. Much like a hockey team we have combined our strengths and skills, worked hard together and like the Men's and Women's Hockey teams Munchkins is at the top of its game!
It is important for both to remain successful and Chris hopes his gift will enable the club to grow the future stars of Isca, possibly from little Munchkins, and enable this wonderful club to celebrate another 100 years!
