Fostering involves the wider community and family and Foster Grandad Roy is just that. He has an amazing allotment here in Plymouth and for over 12 years has been having school children and his daughter’s foster children come and spend time visiting and helping with lots of the jobs on the allotment. We really believe that extended foster family and especially foster grandparents really supports the experience of children in our care and would love to hear about more real-life stories as this one.
Foster Grandad Roy shared that the children who visit love to spend time learning about all the plants growing on the allotment and about the animals there. They help with the picking of the flowers and vegetables, feeding the hens and ducks and rounding up the geese when it’s their bedtime.
Foster Grandad Roy loves having the children come over and spend time with him. They dig up potatoes that they then take home for their tea, they pick vegetables and learn lots of good things about nature.
Foster Granddad Roy describes his visitors at the future allotmenteers… the children bring something special with them and Roy likes to bring some light into their lives.
A big thank you to Foster Grandad Roy from all the Foster for Plymouth Team.
