Kyle Mcfarlane makes Henry’s day

A huge thank you to our amazing Ambassador Kyle Mcfarlane. You made a young boy very happy meeting and playing football with him today. He felt like a star bless him! Thank you for sorting out the signed ball and tickets for him and for taking time out of your busy day.

We are proud to have you as our Ambassador as always. xxx

Please welcome Kate to Town

Beware of the game Blue Whale

There is never a more important time for you to be a wolf and not a sheep. Please stand as an individual and not engage with this extremely dangerous game, where strangers want you to hurt yourself or even worse. Don’t let these young girls have died in vain.

Smiiffy’s tribute to Manchester

We are so proud of Smiiffy for writing this for those people that lost their lives and injured in the Manchester bombings. A dedication to all that are lost and those that have to carry on living without them.

Our competition winners

We ran another competition at St Clares School to see who could draw themselves the best. The winner Roksana will now be made into a cartoon character and she will take her place in Tappy Town. Well done to everyone that entered. The decision was so hard to make. All of the pictures are now on my office wall too.

Another Great Testimonial Thank You

 

I just wanted to put it on record how impressed our school has been with Kuli and Suzanne from Tappy Twins.

These counselling sessions has been felt in the following ways:

  1. Kuli and Suzanne have formed great bonds with the children that they have worked with. This has allowed them to explore in a sensitive and caring way, with the children, their problems.

2. The children have all reported how much they have enjoyed the sessions. All children look forward to the sessions and greatly benefit from them

Kuli and Suzanne go out of their way to help the children and each programme is individually tailored to the needs of the children.
