We are delighted to have raised over £3000 from our Christmas fundraising this year. Kent Thodsen and his group of volunteers produced and sold many wooden reindeer in aid of Christmas Direct this year – raising £700. ‘Full of Grace’ Cleaning Services raised £480 with a Christmas raffle. And finally, our homemade Christmas cards raised almost £2000 – thank you to all those who purchased them, and a special thanks to our production team!
Christmas celebrations remained somewhat different in India again this year; unfortunately, the music and dancing of previous years remained somewhat restricted by lockdown measures and curfew. Enthusiastic meetings and storytelling were the main way of interacting this year, with the joyous gift-giving still present for the children in our care! Children received gifts of new outfits and small toys, along with their Christmas cards from UK sponsors.
