Ukrainian families join Easter activity week!

Fun painting together in the sun

Last week we took full advantage of the Spring sunshine and worked with individual local families and those newly arrived from Ukraine. The focus was on crafts, which we interspersed with other activities. It was a lovely time spent together relaxing and being creative.

On the Monday, a nourishing cooked lunch was enjoyed by all. We also resourced several families with fresh food and items from our store cupboard.

Below are more pictures of the craft that was enjoyed by both adults and children.

We will continue to offer practical support to individual families over the rest of this term with financial support from Cash 4 Kids. As requests come in, we are filling welcome boxes with toys and food for Ukrainian families in our area.  Boxes are either delivered to homes or collected from our Centre along with a craft bags for school age children stuffed with all sorts of creative activities. 

We have already have had some lovely feedback from hosts and guests, thanking us for the food and craft.  It is just a small way of saying ‘you are so welcome’.
