Thank you to the enthusiastic story volunteers at the Ghurka Camp

I spent a thoroughly enjoyable four mornings (20-23 Feb) at the Ghurka Camp working with 30 volunteers from the Reading Club and Mums&Toddlers, sharing ways of telling stories in an interactive and engaging way. 

They were so creative in making up stories with tangrams, and re-telling a story using key still-images and then adding lines of dialogue or narration. Their enthusiasm was inspiring and their kindness was heartfelt. 

I I hope that we will be able to continue working to develop a storytelling programme to share with their husbands, kids and neighbours – and perhaps even bring it to a public library before the end of the year.

One of the participants was also an excellent baker and created this beautiful tribute cake that was as sweet and delicious as it looks!
