National Children's Day took place on Sunday 12th May this year and is all about the importance of a healthy childhood, and how we need to protect the rights and freedoms of children in order to ensure that they can grow into happy, healthy adults. Although modern life is great in many ways, there are lots of things that are also causing problems for the happiness and well-being of families and children. National Children's Day UK provides a powerful platform for people to talk about the issues and to network with others who want to find solutions.
Our young people take part in a number of charity activities but this weekend a few of them organised their unwanted items and donated them to a local children's hospice. It's at times like these our youngsters appreciate how lucky they are to have the support of staff, social workers and others to ensure they are on the right path.
