Chika Inatimi, Front Lounge Project Leader and current Manager of BUBS commented, “BUBS is all about young parents having fun with their child. But the children aren’t the only ones to gain – these events help the young parents develop confidence and socialise with others which, in turn, builds self-esteem and positivity. We’re inviting anyone who would like to take part to get in touch as soon as possible.”
