Summer Holiday 2024 - Play activities with food

Spray-painting 'Read Manchester's home'

Read Manchester, based in Ardwick, were looking for some local young people to transform their dull and graffitied shutters into a bright and welcoming mural, to inspire their visitors to read. They engaged Jamie, a professional spray-painting artist from Street Style Surgery, who gave us a call!


In March, young people from M13 attended a design session with Jamie, who supported them to get lots of their design ideas on paper, whilst also chatting about what we all read.


Jamie took the young people’s design ideas and came up with the final mural, which young people spray-painted onto the shutters in April. The end results were fantastic.


Here are some pictures of the design process and spray-painting.

Easter 2024 holiday play & food

During the Easter holidays we ran three holiday play sessions in Brunswick, Grove Village and Coverdale for local children, as well as running trips and activities with our regular groups. All sessions had good nutritious food at their heart, both learning to make it and eating it together. Other activities included: circus skills, making miniature gardens, face-painting, physically active games and competitions and arts and crafts.
