Brook House recently held a “Rawsome” Dino Day.
The event was to help raise awareness for the charity Contact, which supports the families of children with additional needs.
The staff and young people had lots of fun and games, with dinosaur-themed activities. And, of course, a Dino Day wouldn’t be complete without food!
There was a barbecue with dinosaur-themed favourites, such as dino nuggets, dino-shaped sandwiches, and dino-shaped cookies. We also had plenty of drinks, including juice boxes and dinosaur-shaped popsicles.
The children had a blast at Dino Day while raising much-needed funds for Contact. We would like to thank Jeni Sugden and all of the young people at Brook House for organising such a fantastic event.
Contact is a UK-based charity supporting families with children with additional needs. They provide a variety of services, including:
- Financial assistance
- Practical support
- Emotional support
Contact is a vital resource for families struggling to cope with the challenges of raising a child with additional needs. Their services help families to stay afloat financially, get the practical support they need, and to feel supported and understood.
If you are a family with a child that has additional needs, we encourage you to visit Contact’s website to learn more about their services. You can also donate to Contact to help them continue their important work.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make Dino Day a success.
