Oak Tree Primary School craft group appeals for help

A CRAFTS group for Oak Tree Primary School parents is appealing for donations from businesses and members of the public while it waits for more funding.

Group organiser Corinna Brown says the skills parents gain there encourage them and their children to be more pro-active with their learning.

Said Corinna: “If the children learn fun things at home this should help them to achieve at school.

“The parents love it. They are much more confident and doing things they have not done before.

“Now they are all Facebooking each other, sharing ideas and researching stuff on the internet that they want to have a go at.”

The group has been running for about four months and started off making Christmas cards and decorations then moved onto crocheting and knitting.

To help raise some money the group members’ work will be available to buy at a table top sale at Willingham Court Community Centre on 25th February.

Among the items on sale will be the sock monsters and sock babies made during the group meetings.

The group, which also welcomes the friends of Oak Tree parents, meets at Oak Tree Primary School on Thursdays from 1-3pm and there is a voluntary fee of £2 per session.
