Christmas

Student volunteers organised a special Christmas party in conjunction with RVS (Royal Voluntary Service) and Dementia Friends. Guests for the Christmas party were invited from community groups and residential care homes across the town with volunteers arranging entertainment and food. Performing arts students put on a spectacular performance and visitors also enjoyed bingo, a raffle, Christmas buffet and plenty of chat with the students. RVS brought along donations of food which guests could take away with them and the Dementia Friends Group provided training for volunteers. Over 60 elderly people attended the day and had a great time socialising with the volunteers. This looks likely to be an annual event for volunteers who enjoyed it as much as the guests!
