Twelve young parents who belong to Young Parents Programme groups enjoyed a trip to ‘The Lion King’ in London, with tickets from a generous donor. The trip was planned as an opportunity for young couples, who rarely get time off together, to have an evening out.
Ashleigh, mother of twins, wrote to the donors saying, ‘Thank you – your donation meant me and my partner spent time together; it brought us closer and put some fun back in our relationship.’
Jason, Young Father’s Worker at Romsey Mill, said the evening was a great success with everyone enjoying themselves and valuing the time out from caring for children. As a bonus, the production covered themes about parenting, loss and maturity that will promote future discussions.
