To bring more FREE, open access play sessions to local communities, with lots of creative, sporty and playful stuff for all ages!

by Turn Up For Fun - TUFF in Alderholt, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

Even more sessions in the area to meet the needs of children and families in other villages.

TUFF has been running for about 15 years, providing free, open access play sessions locally, mostly during school holidays, when many clubs etc are closed, and activities are often expensive or not easily accessible for families on a limited income, and areas where there is little public transport.  

Sessions are run by a small team of trained, insured, DBS checked and enthusiastic playworkers, with LOTS of resources - sports kit, circus skills, parachutes, lots of crafty materials and our trusty book of games!!  All ages are welcome to come to our sessions - our youngest has been a few months old, and our oldest have been grandparents bringing grandchildren (and having a go themselves!).  Parents and carers often say how much they value the fact that all of the family are catered for, and having the chance to meet up with friends, old and new, during the holidays.  

TUFF also run parenting workshops and courses, sessions for teens, including a popular Prepare To Babysit course, and support local events, including Alderholt Village Hall Anniversary celebration and Fordingbridge Late Night Shopping Evening, and various festivals.  

Our aim is to bring some fun, connection and support to local families and communities, right to the heart!  

The money raised through this Crowdfunder Campaign will be used to provide staffing and resources for sessions in Alderholt  and nearby Dorset villages during 2019.    We need to raise £750, and will then have this matchfunded by Dorset County Council, through Wessex FM and Crowdfunder!!!
