Christmas Celebrations for Whitstable
Our Whitstable foster parents and staff celebrated their achievements with a special Christmas Lunch at the Chilston Park Hotel in the North Downs of Kent.
Earlier this month, our Whitstable foster parents and staff celebrated their achievements with a special Christmas Lunch at the Chilston Park Hotel in the North Downs of Kent.
Amber Russell, Whitstable Team Administrator, shares what they got up to...
It was a cold and frosty morning but the hotel and grounds looked picture perfect. As we made our way inside, we admired the beautiful decorations throughout - it was magical!
We took our seats in the Orangery and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Laughter and chatter filled the room and there was a wonderful atmosphere.
During the lunch, Sue, one of our foster parents, held a raffle for her daughters Lauren and Olivia who are running the Marathon next year. Their chosen charities are Asthma UK, a cause close to the family's heart and Make a Wish Foundation and we are glad to have been able to contribute. The raffle raised £100 and was won but our lovely Education Coordinator, Jo. We hope that you enjoyed the festive treats!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this year's Christmas Lunch - we had a great time celebrating with you and we hope that you did too!
