FtSE Member News: Barnardo's - Fostering charity launch the Heart Gallery 'Children who wait' - come along and see our work of Heart
Artwork by children who have been fostered will be the focus of an art gallery being launched this valentines weekend in Aberdeen's Union Square Mall.
Come and see our work of heart this valentines weekend - Our fostering North service will be launching their first-ever Heart Gallery entitled 'Children who wait'. The gallery will showcase artwork by local fostered children.
Foster carers and staff will be on site to answer any questions you have about fostering on Saturday 13 February between 10am and 6pm and on Sunday 14 February 11am - 5pm. And for the young at heart, Party Box will have a giant dinosaur roaming and pony cycles to ride. Help us heal hearts this valentines.
At Barnardo’s we believe there are no unwanted children just unfound families. Could you be one?
Kim McPherson, Children Service Manager, promotes fostering across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire for Barnardo's Scotland, she said: "Every piece of work featured in the Heart Gallery has been created by a child or young person living in foster care in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. We hope the gallery will give people an insight to what it's like for our children in foster care".
Anyone interested in finding out more about fostering or adoption can get in touch with their local Barnardo's foster care or adoption team.
