During the half term week, 47 different children with disabilities and complex needs attended YMCA East Surrey’s Yippee Playscheme, leading to a total 624 hours of Short Breaks care.
Children attending the Playscheme had a wonderful time taking part in Halloween themed activities, including pizza making, pumpkin carving and enjoying a fancy dress Halloween party. They particularly loved their outing to Bocketts Farm, where members of the group stroked some of the small animals, took a spin around the go-cart track or tried their hand at the milking machine.
