‘Wonderful Things’ happen at play club
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.
