Young people living with us over the festive season have a very special staff member on duty with them for Christmas Day.

Olivia Burton, Deputy Chief Executive at YMCA Doncaster, opted to cover the Christmas morning shift in the hostel but found that posed a problem.

“My husband’s a chef and so he’s also working on Christmas Day,” she explained. That meant that their beloved dog, Rocco might have to spend part of the day alone.

“We decided to bend the rules a bit for one day and bring Rocco along to help with the festivities.”

Entering into the spirit in his “Santa Paws” costume, Rocco has thoroughly enjoyed the fuss of being centre of attention!
