Blake Donate FREE Resources to Homeworking Parents and Hospitalised Children During UK Lockdown

 

Here at Blake we are always ready to help those in need, particularly those thousands of children across the world who live in poverty and are deprived of access to a good education.

Our support isn’t just limited to these children though. In recent days, we have been extending our help to the younger generation in a very different way…

Mindful of the challenges that everyone is facing in life under lockdown whilst the coronavirus rages, our thoughts have been particularly with those who are juggling working from home with the care of young children whilst the schools are closed. No easy task, these are perhaps the persons that are under the most pressure during these challenging times!

 

As the novelty of staying at home begins to wear off and the kids start to tire of their usual activities, we have been offering something new to drive away boredom and encourage some creativity and fun…

 

The perfect solution for keeping little monkeys busy and out of their parents hair, we have been donating hundreds of our FREE #colourwithBlake envelope designing activity and #craftwithBlake pack of coloured paper resources to anyone who is feeling the need of some amusement, either for the kids or the whole family!

 

We have now sent out a total of over 400 of these fabulous supplies, including many of our customers.

 

We have also donated 100 paper packs to the Bristol Children’s Hospital and a further 50 to the Children’s Ward at Yeovil District Hospital, where we hope they have helped to keep the young patients busy and brought some happiness and cheer to them during their time in hospital.

 

“Thank you very much for doing your part to help us parents keep our kids occupied. It’s greatly appreciated.”

Nikki from Yeovil.

“Thank you for your email and lovely offer! Absolutely we would appreciate some of your crafting packs. Our patients (and I’m sure some staff!) would thoroughly enjoy these and will definitely help to keep the boredom at bay for a bit!”

Sofia, Bristol Children’s Hospital

 “My family is going through hard times during lockdown. I am a key worker and our kids have to stay at home and we are running out of activities. If we can get an activity pack we would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance for your time and hard work.”

Ruta from King’s Lynn

To all the lovely people at Blake, thank you for thinking of the working parents with children to entertain!

“My little girl loved the coloured paper and made cards for all our family!”
