A Christmas Party is held every December since 2008 at the East Lynn Community Centre. Over the years this event has grown from only a few people to approximately 1000 people in 2012. Here we strive to make it a family day. We start in the morning with games and jumping castles for the kids. Then we have artists performing, sing-a-longs, sweets and cold drinks, performances by some of the kids under our care and lunch. Later the evening X-mas father arrives with a fire truck and everybody from the youngest to the oldest get a small present.
In many cases this is the only present these people will get for Christmas. All of these presents are collected throughout the year, from generous donations from companies and individuals.
We also have a couple of smaller X-mas functions at some of the local scatter camps.
This is where your donation big or small make a big difference.
