Eighty-seven children were signed up for the Christmas party and a team of volunteers gathered to wrap the toys from the Tesco Toy Appeal and another tranche collected by Keele students. The operation commanded by Ryn, was efficiency itself. It needs to be because or tempers can fray queuing for Father Christmas if presents aren’t quickly despatched! Inevitably there will be parents and children arriving without having registered for the party, so a supply of reserve presents is also needed.
Several staff and volunteers gathered to wrap around the donated toys and hall lookwd quite magical as they set to work.
