On 12th December we welcomed more than 60 parents, children, volunteers and supporters to our Christmas party for the families we support.
It was a busy, energetic day, and it brought a smile to families living with real challenges this Christmas. The Christmas party is always a wonderful way for us to show our families how much we care, and bring a bit of festive cheer to those who need it. Meeting Santa and his elves is of course a huge treat for the children!
“I can only express how grateful I am to Home Start for everything, today was just amazing! If there is a perfect demonstration of what Christmas should be about, it’s what you put on today. Helping others, giving unconditionally, supporting and most importantly spreading joy.” – a message from a Home-Start mum.
Thank you to all those who donated toys via St Anne’s church, Sparkies Nursery School, and Bloom-London. Thanks also to the volunteers from Home-Start and Barclays for helping make the event a success and showing local families facing tough times that others in the community care! We have given out more than 200 gifts to local families, and are still taking out toy deliveries this week to families who couldn’t make it to the party.
We hope you enjoy this little video showing the festive atmosphere of the day:
