Supporting new parents and young children in our community
About The Big Love Bambino Club
The club is a weekly, term-time playgroup held in Ashburton Town Hall for parents and children aged 0-5 years.
Children can enjoy activities and playing with toys and each other, whilst parents can enjoy tea & a biscuit and meeting other parents.
As we emerge from the relative isolation imposed by the pandemic, social interaction is critical for young children's development and wellbeing and also for the wellbeing of new parents. Play groups provide a safe space for young children to socialise and explore the world whilst parents benefit from the support of the group.
Playgroups need initial funding for materials and toys for activities in order to establish themselves successfully. Once they are up and running they should able to fund their own day-to-day expenditure and running costs.
Jasmine attended the Ashburton SOUP event looking for modest sums in order to help buy toys and materials for activities - they don't need a lot, a little goes a long way!
