Christmas fun day at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre

There was plenty of festive activities to get involved in this December at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre with crafts, food and even a visit from Father Christmas himself.

During the Christmas Cracker event on Friday 9 December Air Cadets volunteered to help make Christmas decorations such as Christmas cards and bird seed bells. These decorations were added to festive hampers which were given to sheltered accommodation schemes around Gainsborough and rural Lincolnshire.

There was also a Christmas fun day on Saturday 17 December where over 30 people turned up to take part in craft making, cookie decorating and story time with Father Christmas.

Bryony Roberts, the Talent Match Ambassador for Acis, organised the events. She said: “I have only been here for a short time and I love the fact that I can engage within the community. Running these events, no matter how successful means a great deal. You can show such high levels of caring and commitment to the community just by helping with the smallest things.

“Helping with the hampers was an amazing feeling, Christmas Cracker will only get stronger and the Christmas fun day was a beautiful event that left the children with massive smiles. It is a wonderful feeling knowing you have done some good.”
