A father-of-three is raising money to safeguard the future of an activities group for fellow dads and their children.

Lee Emmanuel launched the Single Dads’ Society in Cricklewood last February, but needs £2,500 to ensure its future in 2014.

Mr Emmanuel told the Times Series: “As a single parent myself I soon realised there wasn’t much out there for dads to do, and I didn’t know what I was entitled to in terms of things like benefits.

“I set up this group to create a safe environment for dads to socialise and kids to play and interact. I also want to set up training sessions with teachers and lecturers so that dads can learn new skills.”

Training sessions would be held for skills such as brick laying, hairdressing and IT, as well as activity days for families including trips to history and art museums.

Money will be used to hire halls for the society as well as pay for the training and activity days.
