Hayley wants her daughter Orla to enjoy the same experiences as other children. But, as for any single mum, it’s hard to find the money for things they can do together.
Like many children, Orla loves the popular Disney film “Frozen”. So Hayley uses a £1 pack of branded cake mix to create a fun activity for Orla at home. “She enjoys it so who cares how much mess we make?” laughs Hayley. “It’s good, even if our cakes aren’t!”
But where can you have a day out without paying a king’s ransom? “The local museum is a great place to go,” says Hayley. Warm and welcoming, it’s filled with lovely objects and images and stuffed animals to charm any little princess (or prince). Better still, it’s free.
