Since lockdown, many of our activities were affected. We have still been able to support our families, giving children things to look forward to.
ROYAL ALEXANDRA CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
The Play team needed items that once used could not be returned for re-use. We came to their rescue and provided bubbles, play-doh, crayons, colouring books, games, sticker, arts & crafts as well as cosmetic sets for the older children. This we did on three occasions. We also presented the team with some “poorly teddies” who had had operations similar to some of the children and needed to be looked after.
We filled 100 x £10 craft bags with paper, crayons, play-doh, cress seeds, feathers, stickers, pipe cleaners, etc.
We also provided Easter eggs. The chocolate bunnies were used as an outdoor treasure hunt in the woods.
We bought in 100 day’s out vouchers for Knockhatch Adventure Park, 100 ride tickets+ donut or ice cream vouchers for The Palace Pier, Brighton and 50 ticket s to visit Paradise Park. These were distributed mainly to families recommended by their key worker.
All our fundraising fete days were cancelled; however we are now able to look forward to running them once again.
On Saturday 11 September we will be at the Fort Road recreation ground, Newhaven with our popular card game, Name the Doll and selling raffle tickets for our Winter Solstice Grand Draw.
