Families from St Albans, Hertsmere and Hatfield came together with HWSF volunteers for a shared lunch and activities at Dagnall Street Baptist Church in July.
It was great to see so many families taking part and enjoying spending time together. The food was superb and children had lots of fun doing crafts, playing games and having their faces painted. The highlight of the afternoon was the giant Jenga which went on all afternoon with both children and adults taking part .
Pass the Parcel and musical chairs were popular with the younger children.
We’d like to send a big thank you to Dagnall Street Baptist Church for hosting the event and to all those who helped.
HWSF recently arranged a trip to the gardens of Brent Pelham Hall for some of the Syrian families living in Ware. The families brought along food they’d made to sell for charity. This gesture was meant to show their gratitude to the owner of Enactor, who donated iPads to the families.
The children enjoyed running around the grounds and lakes while the adults strolled around and enjoyed tea and cakes.
Afterwards, the group gathered at a volunteer’s house to share a meal and relax in the garden.
