Our Heywood team celebrate 'Make a Gift Day'?

31st December, 2019

Today is Make a Gift Day and this encourages people to try and make a gift, no matter what it is, opposed to buying one. Not only does it save people money, it also can be more personable because it has shown you have put that extra thought into the gift.
 
To celebrate the day, our Heywood team invited all of our foster families to the office for a family Christmas Craft event.  During the event, Trish (one of our carers) and Eve (one of our young people), helped other carers and children to make table decorations with baubles and fern. These were incredibly popular and a lot of our children made one for their parents as a gift.
 
In addition, we also had a table set up which would allow children and their cares to make personalised tree decorations and handmade cards that they could gift to family and friends. It was so lovely to see everyone getting stuck into the crafts and coming up with some really lovely pieces which add that extra personal touch.
 
I was a fabulous night and all of the children interacted well and shared ideas when getting involved in the activities. Eve was encouraging other children and young people that came to attend more events including the Anchor youth group. It was also a fantastic opportunity for carers to let their hair down and meet other carers and share experiences in a relaxed environment.
We received the following feedback from the night:
"Thank you for tonight, I have really enjoyed it and made a gift for my mum" Debbie, foster carer "I’m really pleased we came now and will come to the next Anchor group." Keeley, young person.
