Alive would like to send a huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone that supported our Christmas Fundraising Bazaar at the Bristol Dementia Meeting Centre at St Monica Trust, Westbury Fields, last week.
For several weeks our members have enjoyed making lavender bags, crafting Christmas cards, potting up Spring bulbs and helping to prepare chocolate and sweetie cones. They also wanted to show appreciation to the hardworking carers at St Monica Trust and so they worked together to make children’s Christmas Eve treat boxes, which they gifted to care staff on the day.
The tombola stall was very popular and was run by members who raised money for animal welfare for many years. Lesley told us that she had loved the opportunity to contribute to the local community again.
We are delighted to say that our mini-social enterprise was a huge success! Our members helped raise a whopping £355 on the day!
