Colleagues from Magenta Living have been busy creating children’s activity packs to send to Wirral Council Children’s Services and Gautby Road Community Centre in Birkenhead.
There are three different activity packs:
- One for children under six which contains a skipping rope, crayons, a colouring book and a matching pairs card game
- One for children age 7-10 which contains coloured pencils and a colouring book, Connect 4 and a wordsearch book
- One for children age 11+ which contains coloured pencils, a colouring book, a pack of playing cards, Connect 4 and a wordsearch book.
Gautby Road Community Centre received 210 activity packs (70 of each age group), which were delivered by Adam Woodcock, Community Resource Coordinator, last week. The packs were then distributed to families across our neighbourhoods by the community centre.
A staff member from Gautby Road said: “We are really grateful to all those staff involved from Magenta Living who helped organise the children’s activity packs and we will be working hard to deliver the packs to children who will benefit over the coming weeks.”
We will also be delivering another 496 activity packs to Wirral Council Children’s Services, which will be distributed to alternative provisions, group living for young people of varying ages and foster carers.
Mark Armstrong, Assistant Director, Strategy & Regeneration said: “We hope that the children’s activity packs will help many families across Wirral during this difficult time by providing some much-needed entertainment and fun. I am very proud of my Magenta Living colleagues who continue to volunteer to help out our community and those in particular that have packed and delivered the activity packs. I am sure the recipients will be very grateful.”
