Alkimos: schools rally to Trinity Playgroup’s aid

A COMMUNITY playgroup has received plenty of support and donations after a break-in last month.

Days after the Trinity Playgroup opened on March 31, someone broke into Room 3 of the community facility in Alkimos. President Sarah Williams said they trashed the space and vandalised the craft supplies.

However, after a story in the Times last month, the community rallied to help the fledgling non-profit group rebuild its stocks.

“We have received many donations of toys, art and craft supplies and cash,” Mrs Williams said.

“This means that the playgroup will be able to run many craft projects in the future, and plenty of opportunities to get messy,” she said.

“It is still early days, but myself and the other leaders have a renewed passion to make this group work.

“We have grown from four regular members to 10.”

Northshore Christian School, which will open in 2017, donated art supplies last Thursday to replace most of the items that were stolen or destroyed.
