Home-start Merton’s annual family outing to Littlehampton will take place on Tuesday, August 14.

The charity offers regular support, friendship and practical help to families with at least one child under five, in their own homes.

Fundraising events throughout the year enable Home-Start Merton to fund the family day trip to the seaside.

In keeping with the summer events, the outing will have an Olympic Theme, with staff organising games and a medal ceremony at the end of the day.

Cllr Miles Windsor, a trustee of Home-Start Merton said, ‘Home-Start is a fantastic organisation which is a great benefit and support to Merton’s young families.

"The work they do is so important in keeping families together and, in he long-term, preventing further social breakdown in our communities.

“I hope they have a wonderful time at the seaside together and that the sun shines for them.’
