Buddy Benches donated to St Molaga’s NS & Bracken ETNS in Balbriggan

April 6, 2017 0

Friends of Autism & ADHD Ltd in conjunction with the Men’s Shed Balbriggan were delighted to donate two more Buddy Benches to St Molaga’s National School and Bracken Educate Together National School in Balbriggan this afternoon.  The purpose of the benches is  simple, if a child is sitting alone on the bench it may be an indication they need someone to talk to.

These beautiful, inviting benches are lovingly made by local Balbriggan men some of whom have grandchildren in the schools, which makes them even more special.  Friends of Autism and the Men’s Shed hope the benches will help the children to break down barriers and help them realise that sometimes a simple chat can help.
