Buzz Child Contact Centre is funded by BBC Children in Need and supported by Sheffield Town Trust, Cafcass, Southall Trust and James Neill Trust.
We’d like to introduce you to a very special bear! Buzzby! He was created by https://ellavasketch.com and named through a competition on social media judged by our founder Ralph Keene! We hope with a lot of love and some luck he will grow up to be our very own Buzz Mascot! Watch out for stories of his adventures at Buzz coming soon!
We’re coming to the end of this first timetable, its been a great few weeks on line, look out for our new timetable on social media next week!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a pack to be sent.
We are busy creating entertainment packs to send out to older people who are more vulnerable to being lonely during this period of social distancing. The packs will be paper based and include;
Quizzes, large print crosswords, Radio Sheffield’s timetable of programmes (so people can tune in to the interactive shows and maybe get a shout out and a song played!) a myth busting fact sheet to try to allay fears and our phone numbers with times we are available.
We’re also asking for recipes and memories. Each week we’ll send questions based on a theme to prompt memories. We’re planning to bring all the memories and recipes together into a ‘book’ that we can share with everyone. We will include a Stamped Addressed Envelope in case a family member or friend can post but we will also be phoning people who want a phone call and can collect the info then over a good natter!
Any ideas as we go are very welcomed! We’re making a start but as this period of time may last for a while we’ll need all your ideas to keep it fresh and engaging!
