Onlookers have been surprised to see a variety of characters walking down their streets, a dinosaur, Pokemon’s Pikachu and a frog being just a few! The costumes are the very creative idea of My Life Support’s Nikki McDowall, who says:
“We have started a new way to do our daily walks and give people in our community a smile. The children have been excited, the adults have laughed, we have been cheered and clapped! Cars have beeped and there have been people waving everywhere we go!”
Fast becoming a local phenomenon, lots of photos have been taken of Nikki and the team. As they walked past a local school, they were invited into the school yard so that all the key worker’s children could see them, with social distancing, of course. The event was so popular it not only created smiles on the faces of the thirty children, Nikki and the team also made it onto the school Facebook page!
After emailing us the photos, Nikki said: “We thought we would share our joy and our positive walks and give everyone at My Life something to smile at too!”
Nikki also tells us that there is a change of costumes coming – we look forward to seeing the photos when this happens!
