Since May, we’ve been hosting free virtual coffee mornings with guest speakers and organisations. We’ve covered nutrition, fitness and mental wellbeing, and guest organisations include HENRY, Bongalong, Healthworks, Kinder Nutrition, Chit-Chat Pitter-Pat, Little Veggie Eats and Waltham Forest Cloth Nappy Library.
We know that lockdown has been particularly challenging for lots of families. With the funding of the City Bridge Trust, we’ve been able to offer one-to-one counselling sessions for Toy Library members. The City Bridge Trust have also helped us to run breastfeeding support sessions and to give away 150 Puppet Theatre Project boxes to families.
We have delivered 100 craft packs to families in need, thanks to support from the Barbican and Arts Council England.
With the support of the London Borough of Waltham Forest, we have been able to run a mobile toy library and Tesco Bags of Help have also enabled us to provide further breastfeeding support. Thanks to Magic Little Grant who have enabled safe physical play.
