Youngsters in Armley are set to benefit from ‘Mini Playboxes’ of fun and creative activities during lockdown.
Kirkstall Road social enterprise Seagulls Re-use has joined forces with community organisations LS14 Trust, Fall into Place and Playful Anywhere to create the boxes of fun and creativity.
A spokesperson for the project said:
“Thanks to funding from Armley ward councillors we’re able to reach people across Armley ward during lockdown with fun, inspiring packs of creative goodies and ideas.
“Do let us know if you would like a box. You do need to live in the Armley Ward.
“We have limited Mini Playboxes available and would prefer to prioritise giving them to people who would otherwise struggle to go to the shops or buy online.”
LS14 Trust and Fall Into Place are delivering and distributing hundreds of Mini Playboxes.
Organisers are also inviting people to include information, ideas, recipes, quizzes, trails, activities and fun games or even donate items, gifts and goodies into the Mini Playboxes.

Playful Anywhere runs the full-size Playboxes, which are former shipping containers featuring games, toys, crafts – everything you need to get creative as a family. The social enterprise was set up by Pudsey resident Emma Bearman.
