As the school terms wind down for holidays, a sense of excitement builds around classrooms across Redbridge.
Whether you are jetting off to foreign lands or spending quality time with your friends there is lots to see and do.
But for a group of children who are fostered in the borough, holidays and activities are something they can only dream about - that is until Shine fostering decided to help.
The organisation in George Lane, South Woodford is holding an Art Auction to raise money to take children on trips.
Director Khushbir Green said: “Most of our children have never had the experience of a holiday or doing crazy, fun outdoor activities.
“What we want to do is create memories and therefore being in care, can be a positive, happy experience too.
“With the money raised last year, from we took many of our children to the Isle of Man - imagine their faces getting on their first aeroplane trip at the age of 16.”
The auction takes place on November, 23 at Lily’s Indulgence, George Lane at 5.30.
