In March 2016, the Trust sponsored 14 homeless children from the Hope for Family Centre, to enable them to take part in a nature camp.It gave them an opportunity to appreciate and learn about nature. They were taught some birding skills, lagoon dipping, wildlife watching, kayaking, snorkelling and even some essential outdoor first aid skills.
This Center provides emergency accommodation for 14 single adults and their families, as well as 10 additional rooms to provide transitional care for families. This transitional care programme provides, education, job training/placement, parenting and additional help for the children so their families can become independent and successful residents in the community.
We received some truly heart felt thank you letters from the children and comments such as "best week ever," "please can we come back next year?" and "I never realised the lagoon could be so much fun."
We are very pleased that we might be able to support them again this year and will give you an up-date shortly.
