The Hope Charity Shop that runs from Hope House 35 Acregate is sponsoring a FREE ENRTY (no Subs paid) Kids Club at Dream Centre Carfield for the next 3 weeks. Kids are off school for the long school holidays and little or nothing has been done to take kids off the streets.
Government funding has been scarce to find and so too has finding volunteers etc, until Hope Charity Shop stepped in to make a difference thanks to the many donors and buyers who come to our Charity Shop.
A great deal of expenses is incurred obviously from admin, to equipment, lights , hall hire, food and drinks etc but THANKS TO HOPE CHARITY SHOP donors and buyers, a 3 weeks kids club will run from Dream Centre, Carfield, Skelmersdale from Monday 4th August all week for the next 3 weeks.
Hours will be 3pm to 6pm. ‘Children and young people will able to play to their hearts delight and enjoy additional games like those played on the TV programme ‘THE CUBE’, but obviously improvised and tailor made to suit the size of the building and with consideration to the age of the participants’ says Carol McIlroy the Centre Manager.
‘Kids come in FREE, nothing to pay thanks to funds raised from the Hope Charity Shop that will support and enable this to take place, although there will be a tuck shop for those who would like buy sweets and refreshments. Children under 5 will require an adult to stay with them. Volunteers are excited and looking forward to providing the activity for the benefit of the children and young people, and this will allow parents to enjoy a fantastic 3 hour break daily for the next 3 weeks’ said Pastor Tony Adegbenro, Chair of the Charity.
The children were treated to a wonderful Christmas party with Father Christmas, Minnie and Mickey characters and every child in attendance received a wonderful Christmas gift in December 2013. This is another major initiative thanks to wonderful donors who donate quality but unwanted items of clothes, furniture, electronics etc to the charity shop which we are very grateful for any and every item donated.
