Throughout December we had a lot of fun getting into the festive spirit. We did all sorts of christmas activities from making our own wrapping paper and cards, we watched christmas films and thought about what we wanted from the new year. We end a great a month of activities with an enjoyable carolling sessions along with some mince pies and mulled wine.
We also held our own Christmas Fayre at the drop in and took part in the charities bazaar at St Michaels where we sold handmade stars, cards and gift tags. We had a luxury hamper raffle a bottle tombola and lots of other games and activities going on. Over the two events we managed to raise a fantastic £xx for SUSO. Which is so important to help us carry on doing what we do.
The Fortnightly Pub night also got christmassy with a big christmas quiz. Our christmas knowledge was really tested with some tricky questions. We all enjoyed a lovely buffet and wore christmas jumpers, earrings, socks, tops and so much more. We had an amazing night and finished it off by belting out a few christmas classics, we had a very merry time.
Over the festive period we were also kindly invited along to the CCG to take part in a bake off. The theme was christmas showstoppers and we all took part in creating a cake, Karen baked the base and dropper inners all got involved with decorating it. Megan and Sarah went along to the bake off and were lucky enough to be asked to judge the best Cake. We got to sample a few brilliant cakes all of which tasted fantastic and look amazing as well. It was almost impossible to pick a winner but we finally decided on a delicious chocolate cheesecake. We has so much fun and really enjoyed being invited to be part of it. The CCG also very kindly collected donations on the day for SUSO raising a brilliant £61 which we are so thankful for.
Dropper inners Noor and Alison also organised an amazing christmas meal at wetherspoons which an impressive 19 dropper inners came along too. We had an excellent time with cracker jokes and delicious food. We all got to celebrate together and enjoy christmas together. A massive thank you to Alison and Noor for arranging such an enjoyable and successful event we all really appreciated it.
Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in with all the activities and events we had over christmas. We hope you all had as much fun as we did and we are looking forward to what is to come in 2018.
