Here is what our Storyplay Champions have to say…

My experience as a volunteer with Licketyspit is one of the most remarkable experiences, as the sessions invests in the future through enhancing children’s imagination and creativity.

Asim, BPPG 2019

Doing this has made realise how much I like being with children, even though I’m an adult, doing these kinds of things I feel I can be more myself.

Boatemma, BPPG 2019

You are very kind it is making me more relaxed. You are connecting with me, you are making conversation so I feel fine.

Saliha, BPPG 2019

It just helps everybody to connect and to see myself as a child. It’s something that’s helping with the bonding with my children. It’s usually very difficult…[and this] it goes a long way to help the bonding.

Daniel, BPPG 2019

I feel free. With the dressing up, you can’t do that all the time but I feel I can be myself.

Boatemma, BPPG 2019

That time we spend outside means a lot to me and I’m sure it does to other parents too.

Daniel, BPPG 2019

I am feeling better because if I think I am doing some useful things I am feeling much better and during the session meeting some new people and absorbing their changing, week by week. And week by week mothers are talking more, they know me and ask how are you. It is good, I think they feel better too.
