Our local families in Barton Hill, Bristol, are particularly impacted by social distancing, many living in high rise flats with little space to play. We have been working in collaboration with our local Family Centre at the Wellspring Settlement in Barton Hill to find ways to support them and we discovered that several families have requested access to arts and craft materials.
Responding to this, we have been working with Travelling Light artist Edwina Bridgeman to create high quality story based activity boxes for families most in need, complete with materials. On 6th May, we put together the first 120 creative activity boxes, ready for distribution by the Family Centre.
Listening to feedback we receive, we plan to provide different craft boxes every couple of weeks, to support the creativity of local families in their homes.
