15th August, 2018
On Wednesday 8th August we held the first of many Summer holiday activities for the local looked-after children/young people and their foster carers in Bristol. We invited them to Air Hop, the world's biggest trampoline park, and we had a brilliant turnout of 22 children, 12 foster carers and 3 staff members. You could see by the children's / young people's faces that they had a great time with beaming smiles and red faces! The day also provided a great opportunity for our foster carers to have a catch-up and chat about their experiences with those in similar positions in the café while their children had fun. AM (a looked-after child who attended) said: "I thought it was brilliant. The trampolines were fun - especially if you had someone to play with (I made a new friend!). The battle beam was fun as you would fall onto this big cushion and it wouldn't hurt at all because it was so soft. The pizza was delicious and it was a great idea to have a Domino's after bouncing!" In addition, Janine (one of our foster carers) added: "Great venue - it was lovely to see the kids having so much fun! Good coffee, and nice to catch up / meet other Foster Carers and Social Workers!"
