Santa rum­bles in the Jun­gle

The Wokingham Paper - - CHRISTMAS NEWS -

FAM­I­LIES who have been sup­ported by a lo­cal char­ity this year came to­gether for a day of festive fun in Wood­ley last week.

Around 55 young chil­dren and their par­ents joined staff from Home Start Wok­ing­ham Dis­trict at Jun­gle Ma­nia, in Headley Road, to cel­e­brate the last 12 months with a morn­ing of fun and a visit from Fa­ther Christ­mas.

Home Start helps fam­i­lies who are go­ing through dif­fi­cul­ties, be it through dis­abil­ity or ill­ness, loss of in­come or men­tal health issues, by of­fer­ing friendly, non-judg­men­tal sup­port through vol­un­teers vis­it­ing the fam­ily’s home.

Scheme man­ager Louise Jones said: “The Christ­mas party is a great way for the fam­i­lies to meet each other, and to in­ter­act with the vol­un­teers in a dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ment.

“It’s also our way of say­ing thank you to all the fam­i­lies and vol­un­teers who have sup­ported Home Start in the last year, and we look for­ward to work­ing with them again in 2018!”
