The initiative, part of Buttercrane’s focus on local families is the first for the shopping centre and will be fronted by Buttercrane’s new mascot Roary the Tiger who is hot footing it from Safari to join the fun which commences on July 15 and continues to the end of August. Some 50 workshops will be offered free to children over 4 weeks and the workshops are open to children from 18 months up to 12 years – check website for specific workshop details. “This year we are focusing on the number of local families and mums who regularly shop at Buttercrane and during the summer we decided to reward them with some of exciting free workshops designed for children,” said Buttercrane manager Peter Murray. “We are delighted to be working with a number of local excellent providers to deliver our Kids Club namely Jumping Clay, Sticky Fingers, Mobile Creche Service and Sheridan Stage School. The Kids Club located in a fully fitted dedicated unit in the centre will play host to 910 children during the four weeks it runs. Roary the Tiger will also be hosting ‘Safari Saturdays’ on the Mall throughout August to bring kids close and personal with interesting animal friends from his Safari travels. Buttercrane Kids Club celebrations end with a special party where all the children who took part in the workshops will be invited to a special audience with Roary the Tiger on Saturday August 10 where the children will be the first to hear his new rap and mums will get some special giveaways.
