Youngsters have enjoyed a full programme of arts and crafts during the school break, thanks to the Foundation of Light’s partnership with Veterans in Crisis and Armed Forces Covenant Fund.
Charmayne Tench and her two kids, Jackson and Jessie May, were able to enjoy time together at the free sessions at the Beacon of Light during the October half-term.
Charmayne came along after the kids’ granddad signed his family up after being involved with Veterans In Crisis.
“We’ve come along to the activities each day and enjoyed them all as they’ve been different things for the kids to try,” Charmayne explained.
“We’ve been to Christmas parties arranged by VICs before, but this is the first time we’ve been to Foundation of Light activities.
“It’s been a great way to keep the kids entertained during half-term and they’ve learnt new things too.”Ten year-old Jackson from Bexhill Scholl added: “I’ve enjoyed everything. Cooking was really good as we got to eat the biscuits that we made, and the pumpkin carving was good fun too!
Free activities for families of veterans and those who have served and are regularly hosted by the Foundation of Light and Veterans in Crisis thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund.
