Once again our Annual Christmas party was a great success; think we can say it was our best yet. It was organised by a group of young people with planning, shopping, preparing and serving a Christmas meal for a group of 42 senior citizens from the Derwentside area.

The party was well attended by our groups that have now attended for several years, Leadgate Carers, Rosemount Care Home, Jubilee Court in addition to guests from Age UK County Durham.

Debbie, Youth Worker from Durham City Centre Detached Youth Project also came along with two of her young people to work in partnership with the group.

The young people took part in preparing a turkey dinner followed by desert, serving and chatting to the guests throughout.  Afterwards they had a game of prize Bingo, which went down very well especially our entertaining “bingo caller”.  Further entertainment was supplied by the very talented Consett school choir who once again gave a brilliant performance.

The intergenerational activity was aimed at building bridges, improving communications between generations, breaking down barriers and prejudices from both sides.  The event highlights that everyone can enjoy themselves together regardless of age or background.  It also gives guest the opportunity to interact with others from different areas through social gathering.

Our thanks go to The Joy Foundation for sponsoring the event, Morrison`s Consett for their gift voucher, Consett School Choir, St. Bede’s School for allowing pupils to take part and of course all our guests and young people who helped make the event a great success.
