FREE 'end-of-summer' family fun day in DoncasterAugust 21, 2019A free community event for Doncaster families is being held to help children complete more of their ‘things’ as part of the ‘100 Things Before 11’ campaign launched this year by Doncaster Council.
The event, which is taking place at Toll Bar Rugby League Club ground on Saturday 31st August (11am-4pm) will offer kids and their parents the opportunity to take part in some fantastic, free activities and experiences to celebrate the end of summer. Activities will include meeting ‘real life’ princesses, a slime-making workshop, a live meerkat and reptile encounter and fairground rides, among many others, with some of the activities included in the ‘100 things’ list. There will also be representatives from different sports organisations to encourage more children to sign up to amateur sports clubs and other hobbies.
The 100 Things Before 11 initiative was launched by Doncaster Council in April and brings together 100 activities that little ones can do before they reach the age of 11. The aim is to encourage more children and their families to take part in enriching activities and adventures to help children develop more skills and beneficial experiences outside of the classroom.
Families can access the free 100 Things Before 11 activity book which holds the full list of ‘things’ as well as space for little ones to document their activities with drawings, stories and photos, and are available at all local libraries and Family Hubs as well as online at www.visitdoncaster.com/100-things
Councillor Nuala Fennelly, Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Schools at Doncaster Council, added: “We all know how important education is to our children, but we also recognise the benefits of getting them to try new experiences and activities outside of the classroom.
“We want 100 Things Before 11 to help more children make more memories with their loved ones and have adventures that supports their development, by taking advantage of all the great things we have available in Doncaster.”
The event is taking place at Toll Bar Rugby League Club ground located on Prospect Road, Toll Bar, Doncaster, DN5 0QP. Find out more about the event at www.doncaster.gov.uk/Events/100-things-end-of-summer-event
