On the last day of term, Baytree held a Christmas party for the girls at the centre.

There was a mountain of food including specialities from around the world, kindly provided by regulars at the centre, as well as traditional Christmas party food.

A coffee pop up set up by some of the Eritrean women at the centre offering the Eritrean traditional coffee ceremony, was very popular and went surprisingly well with the mince pies!

Fun and games included a Photo Booth, Karaoke and old favourites like ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Pin the Nose on Rudolph’. There was also plenty of crazy running around and general tomfoolery!

Mrs Claus rocked up looking super cool wearing sunglasses indoors, to hand out presents and take orders from the girls for Christmas Day deliveries. Always a highlight!

The party was a great success and everyone had a happy, fun day at Baytree!

Many thanks to everyone, who made the party possible, including all staff, volunteers and Baytree women & girls. Special thanks to the smiley team from Burberry, who came along on the morning of the party and did a fantastic job of getting everything ready.
