Children can now attend a session of the National Trust’s Dasani-Harper’s Heritage House Storytelling Series absolutely free, thanks to the kind sponsorship of Caribelle Batik!
Caribelle Batik owner Mr. Maurice Widdowson has come forward and generously offered to pay the registration fee for 25 children for the first two sessions.
Storytellers include Creighton Pencheon, the Turtle Doctor Kimberley Stewart, the Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Shawn Richards AND the Governor General himself His Excellency Sir Tapley Seaton GCMG, CVO, QC, JP! There is even a session where participants will create their own story.
“I think it is a marvelous initiative,” Mr. Widdowson said on Friday.
Designed for children aged 6-12 years old, Heritage House features stories about Marcus of the Woods, Betto Douglas, Chee Chee the monkey and his great adventures and much MUCH more…
“I think a lot of our children don’t read books anymore and perhaps parents don’t have time to read to their children anymore. I just want all children to have the opportunity to attend. I hope that other companies will come forward and sponsor a future session.”
The sessions run Saturday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00, starting this weekend!
There are free spots available for the July 8th and July 15th sessions!
All parents need to do is get in touch with the National Trust to register. Call 465-5584 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Children already registered and paid for, can attend a future session for free!
