Age UK Christmas Party

Mears once again organised the Age UK Christmas Party, this time holding it in the Venture Centre, as they wanted to make it bigger and better than last year.

Chinyere from Mears organised a brilliant party, with over 40 residents attending. Christmas music played in the background and we had a bingo session with lovely prizes on offer and a raffle, with everyone vying to win one of the four luxurious baskets up for grabs, as well as numerous other prizes.

Maria from Ardmore came along to enjoy the festivities and very kindly donated a sum of money to us to provide the food.

Everyone had a brilliant time amid much fun and laughter and went home happy.

Special thanks go to the volunteers who helped on the day – Danella (who won one of the raffle prizes), Cheryl and Julie, who all worked so hard to make the party so successful.

Also, thanks go to all the Mears staff who attended, especially Julia, who has let Chinyere do so much fundraising work with our coffee afternoon residents.

As ever, in the New Year, if you need any kind of support or advice why not pop in to the social and fun coffee afternoons every Wednesday from 2.30pm onwards in the Residents’ Room at 8c Chiltern House. Or you can contact Bernice Semple on either 020 8969 9105 or 07785 345 740 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.
