Christmas Party for Ward 86

We have had such a wonderful day at the Ward 86 Christmas Party, which we jointly hosted with 3 other amazing charities, Friends of Rosie, Holly’s Hearts and The Joshua Tree.

The plan was to create a magical experience for the children and their families and we think we succeeded!

Milly’s Smiles task was to create a Magical Christmas Grotto and bring along some of Santa’s Elf’s to help the day run smoothly!

The elf’s were pretty well behaved although there was a few flying snowballs which almost took off Santa’s hat on a couple of occasions!

The children had a wonderful time which is what it was all about, it was a joy to see their faces as they walked into the grotto and saw Santa and Mrs Claus.

We have to say thank you to some very generous and amazing people who have donated to us:

Milly’s grandad and Janet for the beautiful Christmas tree.

Tesco Great Harwood for Christmas cushions and lights.

The Senator Group Accrington for Santa’s chair and the children’s chair.

Ewood Florist for the loan of so many amazing decorations.

Mary Bamber for delicious cup cakes.

Maureen for the fabulous knitted snowmen and stockings.

Lorraine 2 for Santa’s chair fleeces.

Annabel for Santa’s personalised cup, tray and milk bottle.

New Bank Garden Centre, Bury for donation of Christmas baubles.

Finally thank you to all the wonderful volunteers today, every single one of them was amazing and it was a pleasure to collaborate with the other charities.

But most of all thank you to the amazing children and their families for being so wonderful and inspiring, we hope you all had a magical day.
