A team of unusual helpers recently joined CLAN’s Children and Families team and have already been hard at work, helping children and young people who might be worried or anxious about something that is happening in the life or in their family.
Meet the Worry Munchers! These friendly, colourful, cuddly creatures have been helping our team by gobbling up thoughts and worries of our young clients at CLAN in Aberdeen, Elgin, Inverurie and Shetland.
If you are feeling worried or scared about something that is happening in your life, sometimes it can be difficult to talk about these feelings. If this is the case, you could write your feelings or thoughts down on paper to help to explain how you are feeling, then pop the piece of paper into the Worry Munchers mouth and zip it up for the Worry Muncher to gobble up.
But what would be better than seeing one? What about if you had the chance to design one and have it to keep!
All you have to do is send us a drawing of your design by 30th September. You can make it as bright, funky and unusual as you wish. Our panel of judges will select a winner which will be turned into a real-life Worry Muncher.
You can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it to c/o The Hop, CLAN Cancer Support, 120 Westburn Road, Aberdeen AB25 2QA.
Please remember to include your full name, address, age and telephone number please.
