We are very much in the festive spirit following The BIG Wrap earlier this week!
We kick started our celebrations with an amazing 18 people who came in and volunteered an hour of their time to help us wrap up Christmas presents for our residents.
It was the perfect start to the festive season as one of the halls in our Community Centre was transformed into a winter workshop, and was filled with a fantastic sense of Christmas Spirit as our wonderful volunteers wrapped away.
It was like a scene from a Christmas card with wrapping paper, hot chocolates and mince pies scattered around as we worked hard to wrap up gifts. And of course, there was lots of singing along to some of our favourite Christmas classics.
We would just like to take a moment to say a massive thank you, to all of our wonderful volunteers who became elves for an hour. You have helped us to wrap an amazing 230 presents! We truly do appreciate all of the hard work that you all put in to helping us make this a special Christmas for our young people to remember.
If you were unable to attend The BIG Wrap this year, do not worry! We were amazed that The BIG Wrap was such an incredible event that it will be back next year!
If you can’t wait that long and would still like to support our work this Christmas, please see our appeal here and help to bring a glimmer of hope to our young people.
For everyone who took part, here are your best bits!
