Theatr Clwyd and Flintshire County Council are working together to bring a little bit of joy and happiness to vulnerable children of all ages in Flintshire who have been impacted by the COVID 19 Pandemic. The theatre is asking people to donate shoe boxes full of fun, colourful treats to make the world a brighter place for children and young people across Flintshire.

“This is an incredibly challenging and difficult time for vulnerable children in North Wales” said Gwennan Mair, the theatre’s Director of Creative Engagement, “so, alongside the amazing Social Services team at Flintshire County Council, we’re trying to bring people together to make shoeboxes filled with treats and activities to help those young people through this period of uncertainty.”

Flintshire County Council is proud to work alongside the Theatre to launch this amazing appeal. It is a fantastic way to bring are communities together, offering people of all ages a way to something incredible  and make a big difference to so many children.

The theatre is asking people to fill a shoebox with treats, snacks, toys, games, arts and crafts, seed or books and drop them off at the theatre on Thursday 14th May – booking a drop off time and maintaining strict social distancing at times. From the theatre the boxes will be sorted and quarantined to make sure they’re safe, before being distributed to vulnerable children in Flintshire.
