Home Ed/Schools : Wrap Up Homelessness 10am - 2pm 30/11 & 7/12
Play a part in the renowned Bath Christmas Market, whilst playing your part in supporting people in need in Bath.
A unique opportunity to plan and be part of a project fundraising for a Bath based charity, combined with being a part of the Bath Christmas Market.
Develop and use your entrepreneurial skills, as you design and make packaging and offer a gift-wrapping service for the visitors to the market.
During the first three weeks the team will be designing and making their own packaging boxes and wrapping paper, developing the art of wrapping and designing the gift labels.
During weeks four and five, this will all be put to the test, when the participants set up their stall in the Christmas Market, and use their wrapping and packaging skills in the festive atmosphere of Bath in December.
We would anticipate that children attend one design and making session and one Christmas market session as a minimum, more if they would like.
Underlying all this is the opportunity to fundraise for The Genesis Trust who run a variety of projects supporting the many people in need in Bath.
