Suitcase project

suitcases

 

In February 2021, Shaira Makorie Head of Leaving Care worked alongside Lynn Lock Team Leader Children with Disabilities Team to get suitcases donated for all Children Looked After and Care Leavers. A local Facebook group has donated approximately 100 suitcases and more are due to be delivered to the office. A big thank you also to Caroline Lowe, Depot Manager SEN transport and Jenny Burton Team Leader Leaving Care Team for arranging transportation of the suitcases. If you would like a suitcase, please speak to your social worker or personal advisor as it is very important for all children and young people to have a set. If you would like to donate a suitcase please contact shaira.makorie@achievingforchildren.org.uk ‚Äč
