A children’s charity will host a series of activities at Brent Cross Shopping Centre this half term.

Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice will offer sessions from arts and crafts to magic shows at the centre on Wednesday, February 19 and Sunday, February 23.

On Wednesday, children will have the chance to dress up as detectives and write their very own secret messages from 10am to 12pm, make animal masks from 1pm to 3pm and enjoy some magic, puppetry and balloon modelling from 4pm to 6pm.

On Sunday there will be a soft play area from 12pm to 2pm and an art session from 3pm to 6pm.

Parents and guardians will be encouraged to make a donation of £3 to the hospice which supports children with life-limited and life-threatening illnesses.
