    Hanwell Big Local's Small Grants funded the under 25's stay and play to help support Young families as they feel isolated and a lot don’t have any friendships with families of a similar age outside of group. Families attend the trip which they enjoyed being able to go on rides with their children, seeing all the colourful lights and being able to attend a trip they could not afford, parents formed friendship during the trip. We received some really nice feedback from parents, "Being with other mums my age and the help and support i got with my 2 kids" "Was a lovely day out and i really enjoyed my time spent with my child and everyone else and being able to enjoy the rides with my child"
