The Eastcote office have been busy with three activities for our young people to start off the summer holidays.

We started in Luton where we headed for the MFA Bowling Alley, with eleven young people and nine carers, we enjoyed a game of bowling followed by  lunch. One young person commented “we all played together, had a good time and met new people”.

Next, we were in Croydon at the Oxygen Trampoline Park, with six young people and four carers. One carer took three buses to get to the venue and her young person had never been on a trampoline before, what a fantastic new experience! A young person commented “I enjoyed the activity and it allowed me to meet new people, who I will keep in touch with”.

Our last port of call was Hollywood Bowl in Finchley, where ten young people and four carers joined in the fun. Comments from young people included “today was really fun because I met other people, played bowling and had a lovely burger”, “I have enjoyed everything and would love to come again. This was amazing, fun and crazy”

The Capstone Midlands team have recently hosted their summer activity day at Green Towers Youth Centre in Hinckley. Over 100 children and foster carers arrived on the day and we were lucky to be welcomed with clear skies and sunshine! pic 12

Everyone was free to explore all of the activities available from roller blading, skate boarding, scooting, BMXing to Bouncy Castle, face painting, soft play, snooker and table tennis. All in all, a fun filled energetic day was enjoyed by all, we aren’t sure who enjoyed it more though the adults or the children.

Here are some of the lovely comments that were made: –;

“We all really enjoyed the day, something for all the kids of all ages. And even the very big kids including Social Worker, Dan – seemed to thoroughly enjoy it!”

“Great event, great venue I would highly recommend anyone who didn’t go this time to go next year as it really is a great day out”, S – Foster Carer in Leicester

“I liked the roller blading”, K (10) from Herefordshire

“A great, relaxing, fun day with people who care about kids.” M – Foster Carer in Nottingham

“At Capstone Midlands we like to encourage everyone to have fun and explore their inner child, good old back to basics family fun is always great. It’s our way of supporting families to have fun and we know how important it is to feel a sense of community when you are a foster carer”.
– Sara Chambers Ross, Regional Directorpic 8
