Our first Christmas Day event couldn’t have gone any better! We opened the Community Centre @ Christ Church from 12-3pm in order to host a 3 course meal
including Christmas singing and ending with the Queens speech. Quite aptly the Queen spoke about Community spirit which we had managed to capture within our
building that day too. There was fun, laughter and food provided for 40 people who would have otherwise been on their own on Christmas Day. Not to mention the 25 volunteers who were also fed.
There was an amazing buzz around the Centre that day and I felt particularly humbled by the whole day and by the amount of kindness from everyone in the
room. It is amazing how generous people can be when you try to do something nice for others at a time of year that should really be held in a family friendly environment.Volunteers gave up their time on the day itself and before, others gave financial backing to the cause whilst others donated particular items. It was amazing to see
the whole community come together. We have received so much positive feedback after the event from both volunteers and attendees alike and will be looking to make this an annual event.
