The forest federation took part in YMCA day today in order to develop the children’s understanding of our local community needs and the need and emotions of homeless people and how we can help. They raised funds bringing donations and provisions to support vulnerable adults without a home who turn up at the YMCA with nothing and have the opportunity to have their own toothbrush and toothpaste a towels and shower gel in order to start to get back on their feet. The children entered a competition to design their own dream house and there were a large number and variety of entries with some fantastic ideas! The YMCA do an amazing job and the children got a real understanding of the need for this charity and service and were so pleased to take part. Mrs Gethin commented, “It was a really emotional day, we were overwhelmed with the amount of provisions that the children brought in and how articulate and the level of understanding the children and about this local need, we are very proud of them and hope to continue supporting this very worthwhile, local branch."
