Christmas (in July) was celebrated in fine form at several of the OC Connections houses including Salisbury Road and Rockbeare Court.
At Rockbeare Court, in the lead up to the day, the residents made some colourful and creative Christmas decorations with the support of staff Jessie.
Vlada was supported to make a Christmas pudding which went down a treat with everyone!
The day of the event started very early! Everyone was too excited to sleep.
After a delicious breakfast, everyone sang Christmas carols with gusto before settling down to watch the obligatory Christmas movie.
The main event was the Christmas lunch feast where everyone dressed in their best outfit.
A highlight of the day for residents was receiving a Christmas gift. Funds from the OC Achieve fund enabled the household to purchase art and craft supplies and a Christmas gift for residents to receive at the much-anticipated event.
What a fantastic team effort all round! It resulted in wonderful events at both houses, giving residents some real enjoyment and pleasure during a very challenging period for many people.
