Beaufort Parent and Toddler Group – Christmas Shoebox Collection
Beaufort Parent and Toddler Group had a very successful Christmas shoebox collection on Tuesday 4th November.
The collection was for Team Hope Ireland. Team Hope is an Irish, interdenominational Christian development aid charity, working with children, and through them, into their families and communities in Eastern Europe, former Soviet Union and Africa. They transport donated Christmas boxes to disadvantaged children.
Gemma Robins, Chairperson of the group, said, “Our children are so lucky, so we thought this was a nice proactive way to do something positive, as Christmas time approaches, for less fortunate children around the world.”
Beaufort Parent and Toddler Group meets every Tuesday morning during school term time in Beaufort Community Hall from 10 til 12. It’s a warm and friendly group where everyone is welcome. There’s plenty of entertainment for little ones, including lots of toys to play with, arts and crafts sessions and sometimes even a song or two before home time. Refreshments are provided for everyone.
To mark the end of summer term the group organises an annual summer outing, and special occasions are marked throughout the year, such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter, with surprises and treats for the children.
The cost to attend is €3.00 per family, per week.
The Parent & Toddler Group is an important and valued resource within the community, giving parents and pre-school age children the opportunity to meet and socialise. Parents share knowledge and advice with each other and make good friends in the process. The children also form friendships and bonds with each other that continue into their school years, as well as developing their social interaction skills. The group is also a great place for newcomers to Beaufort to meet people and help them to integrate into the community.
