Over three days we've had guided baking, arts & crafts, and exercise! Thank you for all of your photos you have sent us of everything you have made and your kind words. The pictures will be up soon as we update the website!

"Thank you for these past few days of activities and story telling. We have really enjoyed them and it’s been great having the supplies and ingredients pre prepared for each day which takes stress out of organising family activities."

A fantastic event! I look forward to hearing about more 100% recommend.

Official Launch

On Saturday the 4th of April 2015 The Hope Tree was officially launched at the Julie Rose Stadium in Ashford Kent. The event had over 100 people in attendance including children. Various activities were laid on for the children including an Easter egg hunt. There was entertainment from a live band, dance performances and a soloist sax player.

The Hope Tree director, Maureen Gordon, outlined the vision of the Hope Tree and its future goals and aspirations for the community of Ashford and beyond. We also had feedback from some parents who reported, the positive impact that attending some of the Hope Tree parenting forum had already had on their families.
