KIDS' CRAFT ACTIVITY PACKS:
Thanks to some of you and your generosity we have been able to bless families within the community with incredible Kids' Craft Activity Packs, to help entertain children at home whilst schools remain closed. 

The first of these bags have gone out... more to go out soon.
(Thank you to James Waddington who helped deliver these) 

Packs have included all sorts: scratch art, rainbow mosaic magnets, bird houses, lantern craft kits, garden seeds, books, toys, games, puzzles, beads, colouring pens and crayons, craft paper and craft materials. 

It has brought some BIG smiles to children's faces (and their parents) as they have waved from kitchen windows or doorsteps upon delivery.
