KidsOut Jubilee Joy
In celebration of the Queen’s 70th year on the throne, KidsOut provided the opportunity to all 450 WAFE refuges and other disadvantaged groups to take the children they support on a Fun Day. However, in truly royal spirit, many decided to use their £5 grant per child to host an afternoon tea party with many patriotic party activities!
In total, KidsOut supported 870 children over the long bank holiday weekend.
Here is just some of the lovely feedback we received:
‘It was lovely to see them smiling and enjoying a jubilee tea party and face painting!’ – Refuge mum
‘Funding like this is so crucial for our services. All our funding is allocated and we do not have any spare funds to be able to do extra activities such as these. This activity in particular enabled the children to feel loved and cared for and for them to know they can have a happy future from their abuser’ – Refuge worker
