Blayney’s Kids’ Club is back again this year – its 15th year of running Thursday afternoon activities for local primary school age children during the school term.
Organised by the Anglican Church and run by about 15 volunteers, the Kids’ Club sees children play games, learn about Christian values such as through parables, have a sit-down two-course meal together, enjoy craft activities and more. Two hours of entertainment and care for $3.
About 25 children take part and each child has made a money box from an empty can, paper and sticky tape to raise funds for people affected by the recent bush fires in Coonabarabran.
The children take the money boxes home and encourage others to make donations to them over the six weeks of Lent, then return them to the Anglican church after Easter.
Kids’ Club Co-ordinator Janet Power said: “Each year during Lent we have a donation project to help the children learn about sharing God’s grace and love with others. The money raised this Lent will go to Blaze Aid, an organisation dedicated to replacing fences after fires and flood.
“Last year we collected for an Aboriginal youth mission in Dubbo and raised more than $500; the year before we raised $350 for water-related projects through TEAR Australia. The funds were used for a fish farm and to build a toilet.”
