It may have been Halloween but our team were anything but scary when they stopped off in Southampton on Friday to spread the word about fostering.
Our tent full of bright, colourful toys attracted the attention of plenty of potential foster carers at WestQuay Shopping Centre and we spoke to over 100 people throughout the day.
There were retro treats aplenty – and not a trick in sight! “I love the memorabilia,” said one shopper. “I had a fab childhood with all the love and affection, but I’m sure there are so many kids that don’t have the same experience, so by being here today you are planting that seed.”
“I have seen your Magical Memories Tour on Facebook and just had to come and meet you,” said another visitor. “I was fostered and owe everything to my foster mums – you can reach out to so many people this way, by travelling around.”
