Happy New Year !
Christmas started early for CHAT with our free party for the children at the end of November. This event was held at the Holiday Inn where Colonel Custard entertained the children and Santa made a guest appearance. Each child was given a present courtesy of the Mix 96 Toy Appeal.
From 12th December for a week CHAT wrapped Christmas presents in Friars Square for a small donation. We were bowled over by the generosity of the public and we took £800 from this event. Thank you to the volunteers who gave up their valuable time to help us wrap. It was so lovely to see some new faces. Thank you also to the public who not only paid for us to wrap their gifts but also bought us coffee in our busy periods.
A huge Thank you to the Mix 96 Toy Appeal. For a fourth year CHAT has been kindly donated toys from this appeal which we keep safe throughout the year to use in the Santa’s Grotto at the end of the year.
