A great time was had by all! The party was open to all our volunteers and regular visitors - and anyone who happened by on the day! Sarah and the kitchen staff put on a wonderful buffet and we were so lucky to have local, professional songstress, Leah Millman, to provide some wonderful live entertainment. Some of the volunteers took up the challenge and gave us a song or two aswell. Hats off to Tracey (cafe volunteer), Dennis, D and Ben for helping to make the occasion memorable!
The New Year has arrived and we hope that it is full of positive experiences and bright blessings for all.
We had a fantastic Christmas, here at CentrePeace. Some of our volunteers worked extraordinarily hard to get our Christmas Hampers out to local families who needed a bit of extra help. Many thanks to you all. I won't mention all names here - but you know who you are!
Thank you, too, to all the donors who enabled us to make our hamper project happen. As well as individual donations of food and cash, a lot of businesses helped us out, too, including Waitrose, Poundland, Asda, Co-Op and Tesco. We are so very grateful for all the help and support and hope that the hamper project will grow even bigger next year. We even had a very generous cash donation from a local sewing group, thank you.
Here are Tracey and Alexis, receiving the cheque from Waitrose staff. Thank you, Michael, for organising the green token collection - and thank you averyone who put their token in our box!!
The local Co-Op also helped out and, in fact, have been helping us all year with donations of fresh foods.
