A huge thank you to Sarah Ralph for organising our Summer Programme this year. A lot of effort goes into organising these events and it is very much appreciated.
The funded trips and fire station visits were well attended and our soft play session yesterday was a hit for adults and children alike.
If you attended any of the trips (or even if you didn’t!), we would really appreciate some feedback. Any comments you make will go towards shaping our programme for next year.

There are various activities taking place during the summer holidays – see link below for this date:
At Helping Hands we often get requests from health professionals asking for equipment and clothing for families of multiples who are unable to buy the items themselves.
Currently we have two requests for two families one family have 5 month old triplets and one is a mother to one month old twins in the Lewisham and Greenwich area. The family of the triplets would benefit hugely from a twin or triplet pushchair and clothing suitable for the time of year, the mother to twins would also benefit from a twin pushchair, a buggy board and clothing for her baby twin boys.
If you are able to help by providing anything that you think would be of use to the families and you would be able drop the items at a Sure Start centre located in the Lewisham area please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the item details and your contact number.
