A Kentish Town children’s charity has dropped off Easter activity packs to keep kids entertained over the bank holiday weekend.
The NW5 Project in Islip Street delivered stickers, word searches, playing cards, gel pens and colouring books to families around the Peckwater Estate who don’t have gardens, with packs tailored to each child’s interests.
NW5 Project manager Sharley Peet-Newitt said: “It’s really hard for the children to look out from their windows onto their local play area as it’s a space they would freely use and enjoy before.
“We thought that putting little activity packs together and delivering them individually would give them some more activities to do while staying at home.
“We also didn’t realise how lovely it would be for families to have a chat and speak with a friendly face too, while we maintained our two-metre distance.
