North East Hit the Road…

Archived: Posted August 9, 2013

Our North East team celebrated the launch of their brand new fostering trailer last week at Middlesborough’s Cleveland Show.

The sun began to shine at 7.30am as the team towed MARC (‘Making a Rewarding Change’ – get it?!) onto his designated spot and kitted him out with colourful bunting and balloons. Visitors flocked to the trailer as soon as the gates opened to mooch around MARC and get their hands on a goodie bag, before sitting down for a good chat about fostering.

Although MARC provided plenty of shelter, some of our staff still managed to catch the sun and left a little redder than when they arrived!

Overall, the day was a great success with plenty of people interested in fostering stopping by to say hi, including one rather unexpected visitor – a friendly skunk!
