The Merry Berries Club is funded by Children in Need and enables us to provide an after school Tea Time Club for the children of Holly Grove School with generic special needs.
We accommodate 20 children per day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3.30pm until 4.30pm. We provide our children with a healthy meal that is planned, prepared and served by children who attend the club. We theme our sessions to celebrate events such as Christmas, Eid, Wimbledon for example.
In 2017 Merry Berries after school club were awarded £92,185 over 3 years from Children In Need. This was the third time we had been successful in securing funding and meant that as well as keeping all the key elements from previous years, the project could be redeveloped to introduce the children to the plant to table concept with a collaboration across campus and the wider community. The children also launched their own Merry Berries vlog and blog which you can find below.
Please contact Holly Grove School if you would like more information about this project.
