HomeStart Winter Wonderland Grotto
Time & Location
About The Event
Home Start Glasgow North are taking over a whole area of Super Market at Engine Works to create a magical world for all children.
As part of Winter Wonderland Children are invited to the book for the Slanj Bear Grotto. Santa is extremely busy making toys, training the reindeer and wrapping presents - so he has asked Home Start Glasgow North's mascot Slanj Bear to take over Grotto duties for one day to spread Christmas joy at Super Market and also to help raise much needed funds for Home Start.
The Grotto costs £3 or pay it forward price £5:
- Children will get to meet Slanj in the Grotto, parents are welcome to take photos and they will receive a small gift.
- We also invite those that can to 'Pay it forward' helping us to raise extra money for Home Start and enable them to give some extra joy to to support families with young children who are facing difficulties this festive season.
100% of proceeds go directly to Home Start North.
Winter Wonderland will be a space for parents and their children to play, write letters to santa, enjoy arts & crafts, make reindeer dust and chat to Home Start volunteers about the work they do.
Not to be missed!
- Booking in advance guarantees your spot within the grotto (within 15 mins of your slot time) some spaces may also be avalible on the day. This grotto is run by volunteers from Home Start in conjunction with Super Market. One ticket per child.
ABOUT HOME START
'Home Start works to support families with young children who are facing difficulties. We recognise the ongoing challenges of raising our children in the safest and most nurturing of environments whilst coping with the stresses of ill health, isolation, disrupted relationships, poor & insecure housing, financial insecurity, trauma, abuse and loss. Sometimes, we also just need someone to talk to, to be there to hear us.
By training and supporting Peer Volunteers in our communities, we are able to connect with families where they are, on their terms and for as long as is needed to build the confidence and relationships to give all our children the best possible start.'
