Benugo is proud to have taken part in the Islington Play Association Playday on the 7th August at Paradise Park in London. The annual Playday is a free event for the whole family, celebrating children’s play.
Members of the Benugo support office, in partnership with volunteers from our charity partner Kitchen Social, volunteered to run a stand at the Playday. We provided 750 cans of water kindly donated by LifeWater, our water partner, and a range of fruits donated by Reynolds.
The children were invited to create fruit art, forming shapes with cookie cutters and making fruit kebabs. Freshly cut fruit pots were handed out for older children and parents to enjoy as a healthy snack whilst enjoying the numerous events provided at the park. Everyone enjoyed getting creative with the fruits and we saw some great gingerbread men made of melon, flowers from pineapple and watermelon stars.
Despite the odd showers of rain throughout the afternoon, everyone got stuck in and enjoyed the activities, creating healthy refreshments to fuel an afternoon of play.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered and made the afternoon a success!
