Our team on the first day of training
Our team on the first day of training

In January our new intake of aspiring Giggle Doctors began their specialist training. On their first day in the classroom the 10 trainees met some of our existing Giggle Doctors, took part in improvisation and team building exercises and began their artistic development. The trainees have now completed two modules and covered topics such as artistic play, child protection, infection control, bereavement, loss and coping mechanisms. They will begin their final module in March.

Each trainee will develop their unique Giggle Doctor character based on their own personality, before eventually being issued with a bespoke Giggle Doctor coat. Trainees also complete a series of observations under the supervision of senior artists before “graduating”.

We recently received a lovely email from a staff member at The Children’s Trust, which we would love to share with you:

“You all bring every child you meet a special memory and a few moments of relief from the stress and worry they might be going through. You bring smiles, happiness and love to everyone you meet and we are blessed and privileged to have you share our lives”

This year we are launching a brand new event called Chores for Chuckles week (13th- 19th May). During this week, people are encouraged to carry out simple chores in return for a donation. Top find out more you can visit www.theodora.org.uk to download a Chores for Chuckles pack.

 From everyone at Theodora Children’s Trust, thank you so much for your support.
