On Sunday 31 May the Big Red Bus Club will close for the summer. Since March 17 Big Red Bus Club staff and volunteers have organised 53 storytelling sessions for 153 families, including singing, movement and arts and crafts. Our Baby Blues Choir has run every week supporting families through music and friendships for those isolated at home. 17 families have taken part in our group exercise classes twice a week and our Play Plus team have delivered tailor made specialist activity packs to 49 to the homes of Special Education Need and Disabled Children.
It has been our pleasure to be a little part of your lives in the last few months in our darkest hour and we want to ensure that we can be part of your lives again when times are better. Without the income that supports our work from party hire and fundraising we have decided to freeze the organisation until we can open again.
