We noticed that during school holidays people needed to bring their children with them to the Reporting Centre, so we decided to offer activity packs, toys, games and books to families during school holidays.
Through personal contacts and social media we put out a request for donations of paper, glue, crayons, puzzle books and toys. We receiving hundreds of items for children. The gifts are well received by children and their parents:
‘The gratitude of both the children and parents has been very evident. One young mum was so overwhelmed she began to cry, which even made this rather hard-hearted Geordie quite emotional.’
‘Maggie and I gave out 10 activity packs today and they were much appreciated.’
‘One passer-by asked what we were doing and she said she thought that the activity packs were a really good idea.’
Loughborough Town of Sanctuary would like to say a BIG thank you to all the people who have donated so generously.
Please look out for further opportunities to donate or contact us through one of the volunteers or our email.
