Ending the year on a high!

Making the most of the festive season, Big Local hosted a Christmas party for elders at the new Fatima Centre last week in partnership with Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, London Sports Trust and Our Lady of Fatima. Over 90 locals came and enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch cooked by Elaine and her team from White City Cafe and then enjoyed an afternoon of fun with a raffle, bingo, performance from St John school choir and a festive singalong. Mrs Christmas gave gifts to everyone and local volunteers helped to host and serve food and drinks throughout.

The afternoon was a wonderful opportunity for the local community to get together, celebrate the season and the end of another year amongst friends new and old. Watch this space for photos in the new year as talented local photographer Cinzia D’Ambrosi was there taking pics throughout.

Well done Angela from Big Local on all your hard work pulling off this brilliant celebration and for helping members of our community end the year on a high. Angela was supported by the Big Local Partnership Board, HCGA, London Sports Trust, Our Lady of Fatima, St Michael and St George, Trinity West and also by an enthusiastic group of volunteers. Thank you to everyone who made the party such a success. Thank you also to Zoom Enterprises for the donation of an enormous tree for the Fatima centre and to local businesses in the area for donating raffle prizes. The party was sponsored by Big Local and Westfield.
