Art Classes

Funded by The People's Postcode Lottery

Fair Futures CIC was awarded funding from the People's Postcode Lottery to run art classes for asylum seekers and refugees in Bury. The classes ran from September to mid-December 2023, with adults' classes in the afternoon and children's classes after school.

The groups made some amazing artwork under the guidance of their teacher, Lynne Edwards, Head of Creative Projects at Fair Futures CIC.

Windmills and marble runs

Funded by the Institute of Physics

Physics sounds like a difficult subject but really, it's happening all around us in everyday things. Our multilingual science activity days helped children find out more about the conservation of energy, kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy and how to consider the advantages and drawbacks of wind power.  They did this through making games, building structures and playing with different kinds of energy, building windmills and marble runs and investigating the science behind them.

 The sessions were particularly aimed at children aged     8-12, learning English as an additional language. 

A celebration event for families took place on Friday after the workshops and children explained what they had made and the science behind it.

Ukrainian children's social group and summer club

Funded by  and British Red Cross

The Ukrainian children's social group and summer club gave refugee children the chance to socialise with other children in similar circumstances, play games and get support from teachers to understand schoolwork and homework.

At the summer club, the children learned more about the local area and visited places of interest in Bury and Manchester. They had a great time walking, playing and creating artwork.

Weekly English classes helped children to develop their language skills and consolidate learning done in school.

Parents were able to find out more about the English education system and things to do in the area.

The funding also enabled us to make webpages with information in Ukrainian, Russian and English to support Ukrainian new arrivals in Bury.
