National Lottery Birthday Film
Back together to Porridge & Play in person!
26th November 2021
This month we had a fantastic Porridge & Play session at our home in Community Central Halls – CCH, with families who’ve been playing with us online since last year!
We were also joined by Sanjeev Kholi and our funder the National Lottery who wanted to make a short film about Porridge & Play.
The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland has funded Big Porridge & Play Glasgow since 2017 and last year helped us run sessions online all year, keeping our Children & Families Network connected & playing together throughout the challenges of the pandemic. Even though we were at home, in our imaginations we went everywhere!
It was great to meet up in person together with the Funky Chicken, the Swimming Mermaid, the Flying Dinosaur and the Wobbly Penguin. We flew to space in our balloons, introduced the crew to Grandma and even saw some rainbow unicorns!
The National Lottery collaborated with Joe Media for their 27th birthday to make a series of films about projects they support. Click on the image to the right to see the film they made about Porridge & Play!
We were also included in an installation built in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh using Lottery balls an objects representing different projects funded by the Lottery.
For Licketyspit they included a tiny person flying with a balloon!
Our Board member Alison went to see the installation in Edinburgh.
