Rafi + Friends have been busy in London, working with the fabulous pupils and teachers at St Thomas's C.E. Primary School in Notting Hill to deliver a Hopes & Dreams workshop in celebration of World Kindness Day (Monday 30th November, 2017).

'A truly wonderful weekend'

Rafi and Pauline were invited to the beautiful Island of Tresco as guests of Lucy and Robert Dorrien-Smith as part of the Red Cross Awareness Weekend.

Rafi and Pauline visited the children of the Tresco and Bryher School to host a Hopes & Dreams workshop, conducted by the Head Teacher Ms Gates and teacher Mr Wilson, with the help of Pauline Spearpoint and Lucy Dorrien-Smith.

rafi+friends gave each child their own Rafi Rabbit nightlight and story book to take home to share with their friends and family.

The warm and welcoming people of Tresco made this an especially memorable trip. We can't wait to return to Tresco!

Photographs of the children from Tresco Bryher School with their brilliant drawings from the Hopes & Dreams Workshop and the Hopes & Dreams Tree, made for us by Abbey Garden Curator Mike Nelhams - what an honour!

A host of events took place at the beautiful Abbey Garden over the weekend. Have a look at our facebook page to see more of the action @rafiandfriends
