For the past three years Pompey in the Community have been running a Christmas Party for some of the children in the community that are not as fortunate or as well as others. The children come from local schools and a few from Hannah’s Holiday Homes. The aim is to ensure that all children receive a gift from Santa and that they experience a time to have fun and just be kids.
This year with the help of supporters and fans at the football club, Tesco Fratton Park and their amazing customers we managed to ensure that not only did the kids get gifts each they also had a DJ and a visit from Elsa and Olaf who sang and danced with them. The popcorn and candy floss machines were a massive hit as always – sugar rush can be an amazing thing!!
Nelson and some of the footballers made an appearance and as always the kids were thrilled, so many thanks to them.
We are definitely going to be running this event again next year as it seems to be growing in numbers and the smiles on so many faces makes it one of highlights of the year.
So if you know of any child that could benefit from joining in the fun or if anyone would like to help with sponsorship please let me know.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017.
