Thanks to Lottery and council funding, we can now provide free membership for families on low incomes. The aim of the Reaching Out project is to diversify our membership at the Toy Library so that it reflects the multicultural borough that we live in and to make our services accessible to low income families. We are keen to attract families from BAME groups, particuary Black British, African, Caribbean and Pakistani families.
Our first play session is free, then families receiving benefits pay a reduced entrance fee of £1 for the first child and 25p for subsequent children. Please bring along proof when signing up. You can also loan from our huge range of toys, puzzles, equipment and books free of charge, for up to three weeks.
We will be running a series of workshops to link in with our project:
21 August 2013 10am–12pm Carnival Time, art and craft activity with Scribble
31 October 2013 10am–12pm Fun with Food with Regina Sabur-Cross
18 February 2014 10am–12pm African Drumming with Karamoko
11 April 2014 10am–12pm Asian Dance and Vocals with Khyal Arts
We only have a limited number of memberships and free sessions on offer so hurry to the Toy Library!
