Christmas and New Year at the Trust
Happy New Year to you all!
Christmas and New Year can be a difficult time for our residents so we try to keep them entertained through the festive period. We put on over 20 activities over the three week period and many of our residents took part in these and had the following to say about some of them!
12th Dec – Christmas Party for Mums and Babies – “I loved meeting some of the other mums and babies, thank you” – Amanda

Many more activities took place over the festive period with great input from the residents and made the few weeks fun, enabling to residents to socialise and enjoy what can sometimes be a hard time for them. We are grateful for the funding we get to be able to do such activities 🙂 Take a look at our gallery and some of the pictures we have taken of our activities.
