Our Girls Arrive at Graham & Brown for some creative fun!
In November last year a group of Big and Little Sisters from our programme at Blackburn Central High School were treated to an interactive creative workshop hosted by our key sponsors Graham & Brown, internationally acclaimed manufacturers of wallpaper, wall art and paint. The girls and mentors met some of the staff, had a tour of the site and got to create their own wallpaper design in the fabulous on site studios and a great time was had by all. I am also sure several home refurb projects were started as a result!

I can stay silent no longer! Please or offend, time to comment on pole dancing as a keep fit activity for young girls. I am so fed up of listening to women, some of them mothers, defending this pursuit as nothing more than a body toning activity, nothing sexual just good exercise for their seven […]Read more
