Old Oak Centre bulges at Seams

November 13, 2012 in News by Old Oak Centre

Last week was extremely busy at Old Oak Children’s Centre with some sessions seeing exceptional numbers of families during half-term.

Stay and Play ran all week, celebrating Eid on Tuesday and Halloween on Wednesday and extending the age range of children to 0-7yrs. All sessions were very busy with Tuesday’s session seeing a record breaking 38 families in two hours. The lunch time Cook and Play session was also full to capacity.

The centre also ran a special week long fashion programme for children aged 11-18 years over the school break. Over the week long programme we had 48 children attend.

Last month the centre received additional funding to expand its after school activities programme.

Meanwhile, Old Oak staff have been doing their bit to raise cash for charity, raising £260 on ‘Pink Thursday’. Staff baked for a cake sale and donned pink outfits to show their support.

All funds raised were donated to Breast Cancer Care and all diets have gone well out of the window!
