Xmas Funday at Lomond House
Robert and 6 other young leaders from Orchard Hill wanted to give something to the elderly of Lomond House. So they decided to hold a Christmas party to bring some festive cheer to the residential home. To achieve this, they contacted Lambeth College who were more than happy to collaborate, bringing students from both schools together to create a truly memorable Christmas event.
The Christmas party was a huge success, holding a 40s themed event, with exercise and dancing activities; seasonal gift and snacks as well as small goodie bags for each resident. The students themselves also developed valuable team working skills such as communication and time management to reach set goals in order to make the event successful, boosting their self-esteem in the process.
They intend to hold another residential event again next year, taking feedback and opinions from the Lomond House residents to find out what they’d want for their next party, but also potential taking a small number of residents on a day trip or to a meal in a restaurant.
