NEWS IN FOCUS | SE02EP07 A Helping Hand For Parents

The efforts of inspirational mums from our region goes under the spotlight in News In Focus this evening at 6pm, as we take a look at ways in which parents, are getting a much needed helping hand.

Three inspirational mums who attend the Sure Start Children’s Centre in Mansfield Woodhouse invite Craig Priest along to the centre, to discover more about a new project offering families “Summer Boxes”.

With the summer holidays fast approaching, some families can find the summer break the most difficult period of the year, especially those struggling with finance – as they may not able to keep their youngsters entertained with toys, or allow them to have days out with their friends – causing concerns over bullying and exclusion.

Sarah Peck, Kate Hill and Tammy Pearson have teamed together with other mums from the area to put together gift boxes, containing toys, games, day-passes and much more – they’ll then be donated to struggling families through Sure Start.

This evening’s program looks more in depth at the project and why the mums are getting involved to help others – the ladies are still looking for further donations, of toys, money/vouchers and more – anyone with any donations can contact Sure Start on 01623 666 370.

Also this week, we take a broader look at what Sure Start and Family Action offer to families – plus Mansfield’s golden girl Rebecca Adlington tells Jason Harrison more about how families can spend time in the pool with their youngsters this summer.

Join Craig Priest from 6pm for more
