Our Grotto was a great success, being able to provide free selection boxes to the kids as well as a free family photo with Santa put into a magnet for the parents to take home.
Our young people absolutely smashed it out of the park with their performance of The Nightmare Before Christmas! The 15 weeks' worth of practice they'd put in was on full show as they sang their hearts out for the audience. A big thanks to everyone that came to see them as they were really well and truly chuffed with themselves at the end, including those that just wanted to be involved with the prop and backdrop making instead of on stage performing.
Our youth parties have been packed and busy and none stop fun! It's been an amazing time over the last few days and we've had some delicious scran thanks to Healthy Holidays Hull. We wanted to give the young people one big celebration before the holidays and gave them all a selection box too to take home.
We were also able to put together Christmas Eve packs for our families and some smaller snack Christmas Eve packs for our older young people. Thanks to Healthy Holidays Hull, we were also able to give our young people their own healthy recipe packs with the ingredients to make things like pizza and pancakes from scratch in them.
We put together Christmas hampers and Christmas food parcels for our families for over the holidays to help them get by while we were off. We were also grateful to be able to give away a ton of toys for free to our local families thanks to Salvation Army.
The baby group party was a blast and the cute and delicious healthy food we provided went down a treat. We were glad to be able to provide the families with healthy recipe food parcels thanks to the funding from Healthy Holidays Hull.
We've been lucky enough to receive a huge donation of presents and chocolate boxes from the Salvation Army to go towards our local families that we support to help out over Christmas.
We took our lovely volunteers for a delicious Christmas meal to celebrate all of their hard work in the charity shop and sessions throughout the year. It was a blast and really got us all in the Christmas spirit!
