To honour a day (and a person) meant to encourage individuals to make a difference, we spent a wonderful 67 minutes and much more on 18 July being creative with families and friends.

Thank you to all who joined the Wordworks team in making resources from recycled materials. Older ones shared their knowledge and skills, and little ones proudly showed off their new skills and products!

Four ‘production stations’ offered participants options to make knitted balls, games for matching colours and shapes, discovery bottles, and baby board books, amongst others.

Everybody participated – from toddlers to oldies! See our facebook album to see some pictures from the day.

The toys and games will be used for training kits to be distributed to our Every Word Counts Programme partners.
