Creative Christmas celebrations
for One Westminster project

 

christmas crafts 3Around 25 people attended the annual Christmas party along with family members, support workers, and volunteer-befrienders at Paddington Arts Centre, which was held on 3 December by One Westminster’s Learning Disability project.
 
As part of the celebrations volunteer Sandra Jurisic, who is herself an artist, ran a crafts workshop where Christmas wreaths and cards were created, many to a very high standard.
 
Tea and Christmas carols rounded off the event, which all who attended agreed was an enjoyable afternoon.

Said project co-ordinator, Sandra Ginjeira João: “This Christmas event is fast becoming a tradition. It gives people who often lead very isolated lives the chance to come together and socialise, while learning something new.”
