Christmas celebrations at Diagrama

15 Jan 2020

What a wonderful Christmas we have had here at Diagrama Foundation. The activities and celebrations have kept all our residents very busy over the festive period.

Residents at Edensor care home, in Clacton-on-Sea enjoyed being entertained by young Bible Class carol singers from Clacton's Indian community. This was a great way for those residents who are too poorly to make it out into the community regularly to feel connected to the outside world, by welcoming the children and young people of the community into our home. They were also delighted to welcome Salvation Army United Kingdom with the Republic of Ireland to sing Christmas Carols.

Cabrini House, our home for adults with learning disabilities and the young people we support in our semi-independent living service in Canterbury thoroughly enjoyed decorating both their house and Christmas trees. Thank you to all those who kindly donated decorations to us.

The festive period also saw our Cabrini House residents join the members of Bromley Business Network to sing some Christmas songs. The generous networking group helped us raise £200 for our Christmas gift appeal.

Christmas was also made extra special for our vulnerable children in care as Diagrama were extremely grateful to have been selected as one of the charities to receive gifts from Heart and @Bluewater Giving Tree. Our children received extra special presents from this great project.

Kent police came also up came up with a plan to give to children in our care an extra present under the tree this Christmas by each buying a gift for a vulnerable child. We would like to say a very special thank you to Home For Good and Kent Police for their support with this campaign.

A delighted David McGuire, Diagrama's Chief Executive said: "What wonderful examples of the community pulling together to help those in need. Thank you to everyone involved in making all our Christmas celebrations so special. Such thoughtful gestures and generosity made Christmas just that little bit better for the residents, children and young people in our care."
