We cannot believe that another year is nearly over and although it’s still a whole week until Santa arrives we have been in the full Christmas Spirit since the beginning of December, take a look at what we have been up to……
Blyth Christmas Market- £100 Challenge
The festivities began on the 5th December when we had our stall at this years Christmas Market in the Keel Row. The young people took part in this year’s £100 challenge whereby they had to use £100 on a project and make the money back plus a profit. The young people decided this year they were going to make Christmas Eve plates- they were very popular and were flying off the shelves like hot cakes! The young people did very well and by the end of the day we had sold out and they had smashed their target! The money raised was to go towards their Christmas Party!
Pantomime @ The Phoenix Theatre
It’s not Christmas without a trip to the Panto! This year the fantastic Phoenix Theatre in Blyth are showing ‘Aladdin’ On Wednesday 9th December our workers took 20 young people to see the show and it didn’t disappoint! The actors were brilliant, they put on a fabulous performance and really got the crowd involved! Our personal highlights were the crowd getting soaked by Wishy Washy and Widow Twanky and we thought PC Pong was hilarious! The show really is brilliant and for it being put on at our local theatre made it even better, well done to the Phoenix!
Silx Christmas Party…..
We have a Christmas Party every year at Silx, it’s a great way for the young people and workers to celebrate the year! We have had a great 2015 with lots of exciting things happening including our win at the PoSBOS last week! We decided to throw our bash on Wednesday 16th December and the young people used the money raised from the £100 challenge to buy decorations and food and we had a good old knees up! The young people enjoyed a buffet, disco, Karaoke and lots of fun, games and exciting prizes! It was a wonderful way to end the year and everyone had a fantastic night! All the young people that attended got a Christmas Present from Silx too, which they all loved!
