This summer, we've been developing our camping trips with the children, running our Under the Stars project at the beautiful Willowbrook Farm in Oxfordshire and two of our Journey Projects with the Kids Farm Trust, staying in their idyllic lakeside safari tents in rural Sussex. The children absolutely love the freedom to explore and the excitement of braving the great outdoors and sleeping out! One challenge we always face though, is the best way to keep in touch with parents, carers and other loved ones at home, so that the children can share their adventures and achievements and we can manage the practical logistics of the breaks.
Luckily, thanks to our new friends at GP Batteries, the issue has been solved! Having met the team and explained our challenge at the Outdoor Trade Show in Manchester, they generously came to the rescue, sending us a range of PowerBanks to keep the Free to Be phones charged, even on our longest camping trips.
We're so grateful for their support - the power packs have not only allowed us to keep in touch, but also to snap photos of the children's adventures, which are then made into photo collages to help them remember their time with us.
