Are these cold, dreary January days making anyone feel a bit down in the dumps? Well, don't fret! Here are a few happy memories from December to cheer you up!!
Community Christmas Dinner at Braniel
For the past few years, our Braniel group have hosted an intergenerational Christmas Dinner in Braniel Community Centre. This year's event was another brilliant night, filled with good food, music and plenty of fun! Thanks to everyone who joined us for the special night.
Volunteering at Willowfield Food Bank
Young people from our Milltown/Belvoir group helped pack Christmas hampers, ensuring that those most in need were not forgotten this Christmas! Great work guys.
Thanks for helping us raise £500 at our Christmas Bake Sale!
Our Christmas Bake Sale was a big success thanks to the help of our band of supporters who baked buns, posted flyers, brought friends and helped serve the tasty stuff! Well done to Sarah from Lisburn for winning our fun competition "Guess the Penguin's Name" (it was 'Frosty' for those who were still wondering)!
All proceeds will help us bring hope, inspiration and opportunity to at-risk young people in Belfast, through providing positive projects, educational workshops, diversionary activities, as well enabling our youth workers to have hundreds of mentoring conversations with young people over the coming weeks and months of 2016.
Trip to the Christmas Market
To top off a great Christmas, and as a reward for all their good work, our young people enjoyed a festive trip to the Christmas Market outside the City Hall.
The Dreamscheme team want to thank everyone who has supported our work with young people in 2015, and I, for one, am excited about what 2016 holds for Dreamscheme and the many young people we work with every week!
Together we can help the next generation of young people fulfil their potential.
