St. Paul's Community Development Trust

On a cold and wet Wednesday afternoon, during half term, we were delighted to help Smartlyte Ltd with their event at the Balsall Heath Library.

Smartlyte’s, ‘Families Learning Together’ workshop, helped families to raise awareness of  the dangers of  online illegal money lending and loan sharks.  Families heard the story of how Amsty;  an old computer who lives in the Library, scared away Mr Loan Shark with the help of his friend Mrs Anti.

Following this, families modelled Superheroes and made cartoon clips, using animation software.

We were delighted to help 35 local families and over 90 parents and children learn about an important issue and a new skill together.
