Dnipro Kids Update – December 2021


Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone that has donated to our Christmas Fundraiser so far. Funds raised will go directly to pay for a Christmas event and for gifts for each of the children.The Christmas event will be held in the Stargorod Restaurant, who have set aside a hall for us and put together a nice Christmas menu for the kids. Entertainment and games will be provided before, during and after the meal. The event will be finished off with personalised gifts for every child, and a big bag of sweets to take home.We have set a target of £1,000 for the online fundraiser, although the actual amount that will be spent is likely to be over £2,000.If you haven’t yet donated and would like to help out, please click on the link below to donate via our Just Giving page.https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dniprokidsWinter Birthday Trip to “Crazyland” Indoor Play AreaThere were 15 kids involved in our winter birthday trip, and their preference was a trip to the Crazyland Indoor Play Area.This play area has so many different activities that the kids can spend all day there and still put up a fight when it is time to leave. Climbing equipment, arcade games, slides, roller skating, laser tag, basketball, air hockey, ball pits, trampolines, the list is endless!           There is also a cafe area where kids can get a pizza energy boost, along with juice and chocolate desserts. The cafe also serves as a nice rest area for the oprhanage mums, with a chance to relax and chat over coffee (and did I mention the chocolate desserts).After they had finished playing it was time to head to the Cafe for their birthday gifts.Natasha and Anna had asked for cosy pyjamas and slippers. Maksim and Dima asked for cool hoodies. Rotislav, Svyat and Vlad wanted new trainers.  Danil asked for a fitness watch. Bogdan, Rotislav and Artem wanted big cosy blankets and puzzle games.  Margarita wanted a Barbie car, Diana asked for backpack and puzzles. Kiril wanted a power charger, Dima wanted bluetooth earphones. All the kids had a great time and said a huge thank you to Natalie and Dnipro Kids for their birthday gifts.
