Eid Creative Craft Activity – Saturday 1st May 2021

On Saturday, 1st May, staff and students from the Joint Honours’ programmes at Blackburn University Centre took part in another online event with Blackburn Children’s University and Eachstep Care Home. 57 children attended the event and had great fun decorating bunting and making ‘moon and star’ mobiles to celebrate Eid.  Some of the children also met online with residents from Eachstep Care Home and enjoyed colouring cards for Eid and chatting to each other.

Sara Burton, Blackburn Children’s University Manager, said:  “This was another fantastic event.  The staff and students from Blackburn University Centre gave up their Saturday to run this and provided the children with lots of fun activities to do.  Children were able to share stories and messages with some residents from Eachstep Care home, which was lovely to see too.”
