Hawksworth Wood Children Centre
The money from HAVA has supported the children’s centre in providing school holiday activities since Summer 2015 and through October half term and February half term 2016. We are still using the money to purchase materials for current and future projects.
In 2015, the money bought art and craft resources to make scrap collage and has helped buy pumpkins for Halloween during October half term and recently packing boxes for making robots with the scrap materials.
“It’s great, lots of art and crafts”
“Really good, great ideas to help with the children making things”
“Really good lots of stuff to do and keep the children happy”
“Lots to choose from, my children enjoyed all the activities and admittedly, I did too”
“There was a lot to do with the children, a lot of resources to keep children interact”
“Activities were excellent and the kids loved doing them, especially the pumpkin carving”
Without the support of HAVA, I would have found it incredibly challenging to offer the level of activities over the last three school holiday periods and the money support from HAVA has allowed me to be able to offer a range of crafts and resources at different times over the last 12 months which has engaged local families and provided opportunity to develop their confidence, skills and networks in the local community.
