‘Won­der­ful Things’ hap­pen at play club

Rossendale Free Press - - News -

SCORES of chil­dren have been able to en­joy free places at a hol­i­day club thanks to gen­er­ous do­na­tions and grants.

In­no­va­tive project Won­der­ful Things, which started at St Mary’s CE School, Rawten­stall, branched out to cover dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions last year.

To en­sure the suc­cess of the ex­pan­sion - which saw hun­dreds of pri­mary school age chil­dren en­joy­ing new ex­pe­ri­ences aided by Youth Vol­un­teers from high schools - spon­sor­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties were cre­ated.

Project man­ager Kate Crane, from Rawten­stall, said: “We were for­tu­nate to be awarded Lo­cal Mem­ber Grants from County Coun­cil­lors David Fox­croft and Peter Steen which have en­abled us to of­fer four places a day to chil­dren who would not have been able to ac­cess Won­der­ful Things.”

Over the course of this sum­mer ses­sions will be held at Newchurch St Ni­cholas CE Pri­mary School, The Boo in Water­foot, at Chat­burn CE School in the Rib­ble Val­ley and in Stock­port.
