National Christmas Celebrations 2014 Refuge UK

When Christine and I arrived at the National Christmas celebrations we were so impressed with the quality of the performance. The children were beautifully dressed with such glamorous and intricate costumes, clearly having a great time performing the nativity play.

It was clear to see the amount of time and effort that had taken place by young and old, truly a community event for every one regardless of faith or culture. The messages from the children particularly inspired me about doing things for others and helping those less fortunate than yourself. If they carry that message into their adult life they will be a great asset to society.

It was delightful to see the joy and excitement of the children when Father Christmas appeared on stage and gave out presents to every child. Clearly SSSSO UK gets great pleasure out of giving, be that spiritually or materially and that message came across very strong to both Christine and I.

I would like to thank you all on behalf of Refuge for all your kindness and for thinking of the families who are victims of domestic violence in the UK, especially the children in the refuges this Christmas.
