December was a hive of activity at Phoenix house. Three Christmas parties took place for the residents, BoB/ BoS members and the families and children.
The Band of Brothers and Sisters Christmas Party took place at the Wensleydale Heifer on 7th December . 38 fellowship members and their children attended the local award winning restaurant. They put on a Christmas feast for our beneficiaries, along with a visit from Santa for the children and the adults.
One of the attending beneficiaries said: “Thank you for a fantastic day. It was a perfect environment for my Band of Sister to meet up with the Guys and Gals that I keep talking about! The location was perfect and the food excellent. I look forward to more brilliant events”.
The next shindig to happy was the Band of Brothers and Residents Christmas Party at Phoenix House on 9th December. 65 attended all together, Entertainment included a fantastic ‘Beard Band’, magician, Christmas raffle, a Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, and a visit from Mr & Mrs Claus, who dished out the stockings!
To bring the Christmas period to a close before going on the Christmas break, we held a BoB/BoS Family Christmas Party on 16th December. This had an incredible turnout with a grand total of 90 attending. This was very much for the children with a children’s entertainer, lots of games, a visit from Santa, and mulled wine and mince pies for the adults.
We look forward to an exciting and packed 2016 – contact Lucy Wray for upcoming events.
