Thrifty Christmas – Decoration Makers needed!
On Wednesday 13th October Volunteer Centre Hackney will be hosting another great craft volunteering event , running from 6:30 to 9pm.
This will be hosted by Kat and the Monocle, who ran VC Hackney’s successful “Thrifty Christmas” craft event last December.
This fun and very practical event brought together a diverse range of Dalston residents to learn how to make origami cards and decorations to give to some of Hackney’s most vulnerable and isolated residents. The event welcomed everyone from brand new residents, to people who have lived in the borough for years, and from all walks of life.
“I enjoyed meeting others whilst creating something worthwhile that would make someone smile this Christmas” – Volunteer Thrifty Xmas 2016.
Kat will be showing us creative ways to make decorations using everyday household items we usually throw away. All decorations will be donated to people on our Community Supporters project and to local Christmas dinners for care leavers.
Places are limited. Festive refreshments provided! Contact us to book your free place.
