Chief Maker & Creator
Andy founded Weekend Box after looking for gift ideas for his four nieces and nephews: nothing seemed to embody the mix of healthy living, green and creative content that he feel is so important to child development so he quit his job and launched Weekend Box - the rest is history!
Chief Grown Up
As a busy Dad weekends with my daughter are a fantastic part of the week where we really get to spend some quality time together. The Weekend Box makes it easier for us to have fun and create some lasting memories of a very special time in her life.
Karen is about as kind and caring as they come. A devoted Mum to two little crafty kids, Karen also manages all of our customer services; so if you've ever emailed, phoned or dropped us a note on social media, chances are you've already had the pleasure of chatting to Karen!
Norman used to setup and run logistics for some of the biggest companies in the world (like Nestle and Nissan) so knows a thing or two about running a tight ship. Thankfully for us, he's also partial to building a fort (out of Weekend Boxes, of course)
Maker & Creator
Fran is the creative force behind our activities ans the educational grounding behind them. In her free time, Fran is often found zumba-ing her way around Newcastle!
Hi I'm Wooster. I'm a cheeky rabbit who like to play pranks on Sammy. Even though I'm the youngest of the gang I take charge of the cooking activities for The Weekend Box Club members. However, I'm really, really messy and need lots of help in the kitchen.
Hello my name's Hattie. I might be a spiky hedgehog but I'm really really friendly and love welcoming new members to The Weekend Box Club. I have my own kitchen garden and I love to plant things. Club members will know me best for my recycling and green activities.
Hi I'm Sammy. I'm a mischievous squirrel and I love to play with Wooster - even though we sometimes get into trouble with our pranks! I love to explore and try new things. My friends think I'm the most creative member of the gang and have put me in charge of the arts and craft activity in the Weekend Boxes.
Welcome to The Weekend Box Club, my name is Oswald. I am an owl and love to read - although my bad eyesight means I often get things wrong and even fall off my branch! I'm the oldest member of the gang, so I'm in charge of the exploration, sensory and educational activities in each box.
