Fostering Published Friday, 20th April 2018

A free fun day to support Worcestershire's foster children and care leavers took place at a barbers.

Around 25 people went along to the event held at The Man Shack in Worcester.

Foster families were entitled to free haircuts, enjoyed food and played games and had the opportunity to meet members of the Worcester Wolves Basketball Team who went along to support the event.

Head Coach of the Worcester Wolves, Paul James, said: "It's great for the players to get out into the community and the guys relished the opportunity to interact and have fun with local Worcestershire children in care."

The Man Shack has recently opened and is owned by Sarah Hetherington, one of Worcestershire's foster carers.

Sarah said: "We have had a great response from our foster carers in Worcestershire and they have all said how much they enjoyed it.

"It was great to see new foster families and of course to have the support of the Worcester Wolves Basketball Team."

Team Manager Laurie-Mo Gullachsen, at Worcestershire County Council, added: "We're really grateful that Sarah put on such a fantastic event. Our foster carers are a great bunch of people and to get so many of them under one roof for a celebration was a great idea."

Carers can continue to take their foster children along to The Man Shack for special offers and discounted haircuts.
