It was fantastic to see so many of our adoptive families at our annual Easter Picnic during the school holidays.
SFCS staff and volunteers were joined by around 40 adults and children. The children took part in a range of games and craft activities, and each of them received an Easter egg!
Due to the unpredictable weather, we decided to have our picnic indoors. But this worked very well, as everyone sat around a huge square table together and really got the chance to chat and meet other adoptive families. We were especially pleased to see some of our adoptive families swapping contact details before they went home.
Social events are a crucial part of our adoption support service. As well as all of the professional support services we offer, we also believe that providing our adoptive families with opportunities to socialise with each other is vitally important.
You will find there is an activity taking place during most school holidays, which is a help to those parents who are desperately looking for ideas to keep the kids entertained!
Events on our calendar during the past year have included a visit to Big Rock Climbing, a Christmas Disco and a trip to Pirate Island for some crazy golf! Other outings we’ve arranged in the past include sledging at Snozone and horse-riding.
We also host regular coffee mornings for our adopters so that they can share support and ideas with other people who’ve had the same experiences as them.
If you adopted a child through SFCS and are not currently on our adopter mailing list, you and your family could be missing out. Our events are usually free of charge for our adoptive families, but we will occasionally ask for a small donation if the cost of running an event is particularly high.
Please contact us to make sure you are on our adopter mailing list – this is the only way to ensure you receive full details of each of our events. We look forward to seeing you soon!
