Work IT Programme supports community Halloween events

Well done to our Work IT participant Seana McGarry who was instrumental in the delivery of two Halloween community projects in Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon (ABC) Community Network.  The Halloween projects focussed on children in P1 and P2 and offered them the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including crafts, storytelling and songs.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
