Jungle fun for youngsters in Southam

Updated: 8:12 am, Aug 15, 2016

CREATIVE youngsters had fun in the Southam jungle.

More than 40 children took part in a jungle art day creating a recycled elephant, silhouette paper bags and rain sticks.

They also got up close and personal with snakes, chinchillas and cockroaches at the event, which raised more than £200 for the Graham Adams Centre.

Organiser Sophie Burns said: “I teach art classes to adults during the week as part of community education at the centre and it is an essential community building used by many.

“After the children’s centre left last year, it had been struggling to exist, and is now running lots of events to raise money to keep the building going.

“We were overwhelmed by the support for the jungle art day – the response was fantastic. I would like to thank everyone involved as well as all those who came along on the day.”
