Positive messages can go a long way, and its great to see the young people thinking of ways to try and put a smile on people in their communities faces over the Christmas period.
The Christmas period is often thought of as a joyous occasion where people come together, however, for many it can be a very lonely time. The young people recognised this and wanted to spread cheer by making Christmas cards and writing thoughtful messages inside to give out to their community.

The young people also wanted to make Christmas shoe boxes, with personalised tags, filled with goodies to give out to their community. In order to do this, they contacted Tesco to ask for shoe box and food donations and did a supermarket sweep in which they picked out what food they wanted to put in them.
What a wonderful way for the young people of Great Horton show their community that they care!
