These are some challenging days and it’s the children like you who have led the way in helping to cheer us all up.

Have you been drawing and painting rainbow pictures to spread a bit of hope and cheer at this difficult time?

If so, please send in your brilliant rainbow pictures to [email protected] so we can share them with the group and make a massive rainbow collage to spread the hope message further. If you haven’t already done one, get creative and make one to add to the collage.
