Christmas Visits 2020

Ho! Ho! Ho!

 

As we were unable to host our usual Family Christmas Party, this year, we decided to bring Santa to our families.

Over the weekend of the 13/14th December 2020 we managed to visit over 50 families, within the southwest, and delivered a present to every child with Down Syndrome and a small chocolate gift to their siblings.

It was an absolute pleasure to see so many families, we have really missed the family events this year and have our fingers crossed for 2021.

With huge thanks to the following:

The SB Family for delivering in Devon

To Debbie & Mike for delivering in Bristol/South Gloucestershire area

Sue & Pete for helping with the deliveries on Saturday in Somerset, Wiltshire & BANES and for the laughter (mainly at my expense and my driving, loved the banter!)

Gill and her grand-daughter for helping to deliver on Sunday to Somerset & Dorset (despite the weather, road closures and roadworks!)

John and Helen for helping with deliveries on both Saturday & Sunday and also for the laughs and help with the navigation.

Members of the Bridgwater HOG Chapter for their continued support providing selection boxes for the siblings.

ADS for the selection boxes for the children/young people with DS.

Somerset Community Foundation Festive Fund for giving us a grant to supply the parent/carers in Somerset with a little festive treat.

Tesco Community Foundation and Western Power Distribution for helping with costs.
