We’ve got some good news!

We have been successful in our bid for a Leeds Inspired grant scheme! We are working in partnership with the brilliant Age UK Leeds to provide a series of city centre-based intergenerational creative workshops at the Age UK Community Hub during the Summer holidays. Grandparents and grandchildren, we look forward to playbodding with you soon in August! Updates coming soon!
