Newbus Grange Is Feeling Festive
The Christmas season has arrived and with it, plenty of festive cheer. Celebrations, gift giving, singing and decorating are already on the agenda with a fun packed month for everyone at Danshell across the country. Those at Newbus Grange have wasted no time, already designing and making their own Christmas tree. The Christmas tree is made out of individual stars, each designed by the service users, making a fantastic centre piece. It even has flashing fairy lights! A big thank you to Della Bastin, Lauren Sharpe and Mark Jones who supported everyone in the process.
The staff and service users at Newbus Grange are also having a ‘Christmas Jumper week’, raising money for the Darlington Mission. The charity supports the elderly and lonely living around Darlington, a fantastic cause, especially with Christmas coming up. If you are visiting Newbus Grange this week you will have the option to support the fund raising event, and be sure to bring your flashiest Christmas jumper as you will have a lot of competition for being the most festive person in the building!
