We had a great time at our Christmas party when the Song and Dance Factory entertained us with lots of music, games and dancing. Then, after hot dogs and other treats, Santa appeared with gifts for everyone to round off a really successful party.
Our Christmas sing-along with Valerie in charge, raised £60 for the Place of Restoration in South Africa. We decided to add £40 from our own funds, so £100 was actually sent to our young friends who have so little compared to us.
Many thanks to everyone who supported us, by contributing to our collection for the homeless. These gifts were obviously appreciated when they were delivered to the Lodging House Mission in Glasgow.
Our Christmas celebrations came to an end with our favourite service, the Christingle. Our children enjoyed the excitement of carrying their Christingles into the darkness of the church with the candles shining brightly, while the teachers kept a watchful eye especially on the younger members of the group. It was good to see so many parents and friends who came to join us. If you have never been to a Christingle service, why not come and join us next year. I’m sure you will not be disappointed!
