Supporting games and activities for children who are experiencing holiday hunger. You’ll bring a positive energy to enthuse children to get involved in fun activities that bring them joy. This may be playing board games, sporting activities, treasure hunts, creative play, dance, drama, team games or just ensuring that there’s an assortment of play equipment for children to play with freely.
