Proving that ‘Angels do exist’ and are present on earth, twenty-seven volunteers came together to support CDI in making Christmas a memorable one for its local community.
CDI staff supported by a fabulous team of volunteer chefs and community workers, ‘fed and watered’ 87 members of the local community in style while they participated in Christmas music quizzes (as expertly supported by McFly Media) and enjoyed quality time with friends and colleagues.
The opportunity to partake and win a prize in the ‘free raffle’ was accepted by all attendees and volunteers, with wrapped prizes selected ‘blindly’ adding to the fun and excitement.
The proof as to what CAN be achieved through partnership working and the awe-inspiring ‘unity’ of the Leys was so perfectly summed up by one senior, who commented, “Thank you for the most magical of days. Seeing everyone come together for us (Leys seniors) has restored my faith in humanity. Christmas hasn’t seemed so wonderful since I was a youngster. After seeing Santa today, I might start believing again”.
Special thanks to everyone who assisted CDI in the preparation and delivery of our Christmas events. Your continued support, as I’m sure you will glean from the accompanying pictures, really is appreciated by ‘so many’ – Thank you so much.
Also,’very special thanks’ to Marsha Jackson, Lesley Sackey and Felix Vorlander who, as well as marshaling some fantastic troops on the day, worked tirelessly in the build-up, including peeling many potatoes and chopping many carrots!
