On 6th July we packed our slightly smaller hard hats, spades and buckets and headed down to South Shields beach for a day of constructing sandcastles. We were delighted to be partnered with East Rainton Primary School this year in aiding them to create the best sandcastle designs on the beach.
This years spacetacular theme was Star Struck - Explore The Cosmos. The children were transported to space when they created both a rocket ship and an alien using nothing but the sand, sea and a few props to give it an extra special look.
Unfortunately competition was high this year and despite the children's outstanding efforts, we were able to make it into the final spaces, but we will be back with vengeance next year to take the number one spot.
Children North East offer support at those times growing up when a little help can make a big difference for a child and their furture. They are a fantastic North East charity and we look forward to supporting them in their endeavours next year.
