Christmas Party 2011
Once again we had a fantastic turn out for our Christmas Party, 172 came along to enjoy the fun on 26th November at St Marks Church Hall, Wallisdown, Bournemouth! Some families even travelled quite a distance from Weymouth, Gillingham, Sherbourne, Shaftesbury, Beaminster and Bridport so you could definitely say that we were catering for the whole of Dorset!
The afternoon started with a sumptuous buffet and was followed by entertainment from Barney Bay! Barney's colourful and visual show included magic, juggling, unicycle, plate-spinning, yoyo, diabolo and oodles of fun and also participation from the children. With an endless repertoire of zany jokes, magic and circus skills, Barney Bay ensured that the children enjoyed themselves!
Parents and Grandparents were able to chat and catch up with old friends and make new ones and NDCS Christmas cards were on sale raising funds for Dorset DCS as well as NDCS. Debbie Ravensdale, our new NDCS Family Officer, was available for parents to chat to and ask questions. But the main excitement for the children was still to come….. The lights dimmed and a very special visitor arrived – Father Christmas with a gift for every child!
We would like to thank M & J Construction for their donation towards funding the party and NDCS and Dorset Link for the grants received. Also a very big thank you to all the Trustees and helpers on the day who worked extremely hard to make sure this Christmas Party was an enjoyable one for all the children and their families!
