Three very deserving Advent Angels ladies were surprised with Christmas treats as a thank you for what they’ve done to support others this year.
Firstly, Gill Hodgkins who has supported and checked in on so many of the residents of Ladymead throughout the year. She certainly deserved the box of goodies donated by our fabulous supporters.
Next, Anaïck Humbert and Shani from Happy You And Mee who so generously donated their time, skills and materials to provide 16 weeks of free pottery lessons to so many children across the island. They dropped clay at people’s doors, hosted small group Zoom lessons, collected the finished pieces from the participant’s homes, fired them in their studio and returned them to the excited participants. The team even hosted free online pottery parties for children who had birthdays during the lockdown. It was such a fantastic example of our community coming together during a challenging year that we were delighted that they were nominated.
Massive thanks to all of today’s Advent Angels and donors.
