Local Support and Play Pack Sales

Local schools and organisations very kindly invite us to sell our Play Packs through them. They know that all of surplus from our sales go toward providing more sessions for under resourced* children and young people locally (*previously called disadvantaged).

Jack, one of the young people who comes to Cocoon Kids CIC, has asked us to,

"Say a MAHOOSIVE thank you" from him!


He especially wants you to know that your money has meant he can have telehealth sessions in the evening. This really helps Jack and his family, because he looks after his little brother when his mum is working.

Your money also means he can still have his sessions, even in the holidays.

Thank you from Jack and from Cocoon Kids CIC, too!

Number of sessions correct for each fund, at time of award.
