OWLS??!!!

Posted in 2015, Uncategorized, Volunteers | Comments Off

The children asked if it would be possible to have a Harry Potter Day.
To help bring a different sensory element to the Harry Potter Day,
Owls visited HOPS. The children and young people were able to hold and pet them.

They caused great excitement amongst children and volunteers IMG_1690 IMG_1688 IMG_1668 IMG_1661 IMG_1657 IMG_1653 IMG_1648 IMG_1647
