A new Lego club has been launched in Honiton in response to several children who are unable to access the clubs and groups currently on offer.

Bricks 4 Kids, spearheaded by Honiton mum Chloe Tupper, will run at Honiton Family Church from 3.45pm to 4.45pm during term-time, and is currently limited to 12 children.

Chloe said: “We want to cater for primary-aged children who struggle, in particular, in other clubs and groups due to sensory or social difficulties.

“We are hoping to create a safe, calm environment for children so they too can be part of a club.”

The group has been created thanks to funding from Honiton Family Church and Honiton Together, which awards grants as part of its annual ‘Dragons Den’ event.

Chloe added: “We were very lucky to win some funding from Honiton Together following their Dragon’s Den event.

“We have already purchased some Lego through Honiton Toy shop but we need more.

“We are asking for people to use the Easter holidays as a time to rummage through their cupboards and donate any unwanted Lego they have - even just a small handful would be really welcome.

“Honiton Toy Shop has kindly agreed to be a depository for donations.

“We have great plans for the future and hope to gain lottery funding so that we can run more than one group for primary children as well as a teenage one - and hopefully a craft group too.”

Anyone interested in joining the club can get more information and an application form by emailing bricks4kids.honiton@gmail.com
