Children's Christmas Party


The Children had a lot of fun playing games and doing arts and paying a visit to Father Christmas.  A special guest arrived (Elmo) and the kids loved him.  We raised £503.31 at the Christmas Party.  As well as a lot of awareness of Joshua's condition and the ongoing therapies that help him maintain range, have purposeful movement and most importantly, PLAY.

Do take a look at the photos below.  If you want me to edit any or add a name please let me know.

Thank you to everyone who helped especially Dexter who provided the music, Cynthia and Pam who helped keep me on track and sane, Deirdra, Jackie, Margaret, Tumi, Anna, Monique, Louise (and her jellied oranges - glad I got one), Jess, Marcus and Sandra who rallied round to help supervise activities and make the party the huge success that it was.  Also to Fr Michael for his unwavering support, Joan for baking a beautiful Christmas cake which the children devoured, Pat for helping with tombola gifts, Ahmed's Bakery from Stroudly Walk for the kind donation of a box of muffins, Leyton Orient for the donation of pencil cases which were very well received and our household favourite TV star, Justin, for donating 2 signed dvd's. I'm trying not to forget anyone - Marie who even got involved selling tickets and promoting the party.  This party would not have been possible without the love and support of our parish.  I sincerely apologise if I have omitted any of the wonderful helpers and want you to know that we are so grateful for all that you did.

Happy Christmas everybody x
