Xmas 2014- The big party
Due to the number of generous donations this year we were not only able to run a summer event but also an old fashioned child centered Christmas Holiday for 18 children.
These children came from a variety of backgrounds. We stayed at Barton Children’s Centre in Somerset for 4 days and spent our time playing uni-hoc and various other games, reading and developing our social and personal skills whilst also getting to know each other in order to be able to choose a gift from our own ‘onsite’ shop, wrap it and give it, making a Christmas stocking each that Christmas magic filled with allsorts of bits and bobs including the traditional Satsuma, Christmas socks, hand knitted wooly hat and fingerless mittens.
The children also got a visit from Father Christmas and his Elf who had magically filled the empty boxes under the tree with a gift each.
Our thanks go to Lesley Gillott and her Mum, and an old friend of Jude's Mum who did the knitting.
