“Thank you very much for the Family Pottery course!
My daughter and I enjoyed the sessions together.
I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to do an activity with children. Thank you!”

Support us by volunteering

Swarthmore relies on people like you for volunteering. Whether it’s in the classroom, or behind the scenes, your skills can help us make more of a difference to the community we serve. We welcome new ideas about how volunteers at Swarthmore can make our Centre a welcoming venue and provide opportunities for our students.
