A crafty Christmas family party!

On Sunday 1st December, we ran our annual family Christmas party. This year’s event turned out to be our biggest Christmas party to date with over 30 families and just under 60 children in attendance! This year’s crafts were snowman themed and the children loved getting stuck in making melted snowman biscuits, snowmen decorations and entering our Christmas Card competition. The families also enjoyed a magical show from entertainer Uncle Charley who wowed children and parents alike! All of the children also visited Santa in his Grotto and received a special gift and had the opportunity to have their faces painted. We are very grateful to The Fence Club for their amazing donation of presents this year, which made so many children very happy. With so many people in attendance we could not have run the party this year without volunteers from OpenText, Wokingham Lions Club and our own Me2 Club volunteers including Trustees, who helped the children on craft tables, served tea and coffee and helped organise the buffet lunch for the families. We were also pleased to have Christmas party music playing thanks to Geoff Woodcock. Thank you to everyone who helped us on the day, the party was a huge success thanks to your help!

The Christmas Card competition was very popular and with so many entries the judges, Janett and Andy from OpenText had a difficult decision to chose the winner… Congratulations to Kennan our winner and to Christopher our runner up. Kennan’s design (top left) will be used in our official printed Christmas Cards and Christopher’s design (bottom left) will be used as our electronic Christmas card, they will also each be receiving a small prize.

The feedback from the event has been incredible and we are so pleased everyone had such a good time. One parent said “Thank you for an excellent party. Entertainer was fab. All my children loved their presents”

A special thank you to Wokingham Lions Club, OpenText, Bracknell Forest Lions Club and The Fence Club for supporting this years event and making it all possible through their funding and volunteering.
