Our doors may be closed, but we are still determined to support our local community. We've teamed up with Wandsworth Council and other brilliant organisations to produce creative PlayKits for local children. Packed with craft materials, activities and creative challenges, the kits will help with learning and wellbeing while schools are closed.
Over June, July and August, these kits will bring creativity to 6-10 year olds who most need support. There is huge demand - our Grand Hall has reopened as an emergency hub to put kits together, and we are working with local schools to distribute them.
We want to deliver 1000 free kits in June, before following up in July and August with parcels with more creative challenges. But each kit costs £10 to put together, so we can’t do it alone.
This is an emergency scheme in response to Covid-19, running in collaboration with local voluntary organisations: 575 Wandsworth Road (National Trust), Agora Arts Circle, Creative Wandsworth, Nine Elms Arts Ministry, Royal College of Art (Battersea), Roehampton R.O.C.K.S., Sen Talk, Tara Arts and Wandsworth Council.
