Buddy Up take a Christmas trip to CAFT

Yesterday (9th December), the Buddy Up team took 15 young people and two buddies to CAFT for their annual Christmas party. It’s an event we enjoy every year and it’s the perfect way to start feeling festive.

The CAFT team greeted us dressed as Christmas elves and the young people kickstarted the evening playing on the inflatables including a giant snow globe and taking part in bowling, basketball, scooter races, table tennis and table football.

Taking a walk into the courtyard later, the young people were surprised by Christmas characters under the snow machine with festive music playing in the background. One young person commented that “It feels like we are in a Christmas film!”

After dancing in the snow, it was time to eat the Christmas picnic whilst watching seasonal films and one by one the young people were called into the Grotto to meet Santa. He spoke to everyone individually and they all were given a bag of presents. Everyone left with a huge smile on their faces and we are extremely thankful to CAFT for yet another magical evening.
