CARE 4 A SQUARE
CARE 4 A SQUARE
The Retreat this year is a weekend away for mums and their children.
This is an opportunity for them to take a break, enjoy being pampered, spend time with other mums, create memories and have great conversations.
There will also be a dedicated team of children’s workers who have many exciting activities planned such as a water slide, team games, crafts, quiet activity area, orienteering, and a number of activities for the mums and children to be able to enjoy some quality time together.
CARE 4 A SQUARE
Care 4 a Square is an action-packed programme aiming to bring the community together within a local neighbourhood.
This year we are running two simultaneous events:
Pop-Up Pantry - Free Food Parcels
Family Funtastic -. This is a free, activity filled, community event which includes, burgers, drinks, activities, ice creams, inflatables, face painting, live band, demonstrations and more.
COOL FOR SCHOOL
Some families find the cost of going back to school a financial pressure. Cool for School supports and helps to ease that pressure in two ways:
Backpacks - New year 7 pupils are provided with a brand new backpack filled with everything they require for High School.
Coats - Primary & High School pupils are given a brand new, high quality warm winter coat.
Happy Holidays is a free, fun, action-packed educational children's summer programme which provides a variety of experiences, especially for children who perhaps otherwise may not have. During their time at Happy Holidays, each child receives a free hot meal, pudding and snacks.
Activities range from animal experiences, giant inflatables, games, campfires, rocket building and much more. It's a truly exciting and memorable experience for all who attend.
Christmas can be very expensive and for some families this time of year can be a financial burden.
Our Turkey Fest programme helps by providing a hamper filled with all the ingredients needed to cook a full Christmas dinner for the whole family to enjoy.
At what might be a difficult time of year, the hampers bring a little light, happiness and hope.
On Christmas Day there are many elderly, isolated and vulnerable people who are unable to cook a Christmas dinner for themselves or are without family to go to.
Community Christmas addresses this by providing a free hot Christmas dinner with all of the trimmings. Some of these meals are delivered to people's homes; for others, it’s not just the meal that matters but it’s the company, so once again we will be providing an in-house sit-down meal, festive fun, family atmosphere and friendship for those who otherwise would see no one on Christmas Day.
