Dr Dan visits and lends his support to the Ipswich Community Playbus

Dr Dan with Ipswich Playbus Co-ordinator Mandy Potter at Whitehouse, IpswichOur local charities also play a vital role in supporting our young children in Suffolk. Last week, Dan visited the Ipswich Community Playbus, which is a small not-for-profit local charity run by a board of local voluntary trustees, to show his support for the work that Co-ordinator Mandy Potter is doing for young parents and children in communities across Ipswich.

The double-decker bus provides a free service for children under five and their families in Ipswich, and has play facilities on both floors, ranging from a baby area, sandpit, slide and themed home corner. It offers a place for families to come together, meet other parents and children and make new friends in the community. Jenny and her team do a great job and now run eight free sessions in Ipswich, stopping at Whitton, Whitehouse and Rushmere. Like any charity, the community playbus relies on the generosity of local people and organisations for donations, and Dan would urge you to support this excellent service in any way you can.
