During Christmas 2019 we had a party for children and young people, we had games, food, drink and music. All the children and young people had to wear something Christmassy and they asked staff to dress up. They made suggestions as to what we should dress up as they chose Amber to be a Christmas fairy and they all laughed and pointed at Amanda Ellerton and said “you can be the Grinch” they didn’t think Amanda would do it but she did and they loved the fact someone had dressed up and they all wanted their photo taken with the Grinch!
All the children and young people received a present each (after the grinch stopped trying to steal them). They all really enjoyed the night, many of them helped with the food and setting up and clearing up afterwards. This was thanks to the National Lottery grant we had received. All the children and young people enjoyed working together and being part of something positive and Christmassy. Everyone had a brilliant time.
