A Special Thank You Message

by | Dec 17, 2021 | News

We would like to express our gratitude to all of you who supported our Christmas community event – Winter Wonderland. This event would not have been possible without the support from local people and businesses coming together to create a magical Christmas experience as well as supporting the sustainability of our youth services.

We have had so much support from volunteers building the Winter Wonderland, our grotto and elf workshop. Volunteers have provided their time to make Christmas gifts, and support the delivery of the event over three busy December weekends.

People have donated money for materials, physical materials, presents, raffle prizes, tombola prizes and refreshments. This event really has demonstrated the true meaning of Christmas, a time for giving, a time for love and support.

We have a lot of people to thank, so please do have a look below to see all the people and businesses who have supported our Winter Wonderland.
