Hightown Housing Association staff hosted a Christmas party for care and support service users from nine different schemes across Buckinghamshire.
Care and support staff and service users had a wonderful time at the Bucks Christmas Party, held at Buckingham Park Community Hall in Aylesbury. Over 60 staff and service users attended the festive event, which was organised to bring care and support schemes together to socialise and celebrate a great year of gaining more confidence and independence.
Activities included a karaoke disco, quiz, raffle and live performance from Country and Western band ‘A Little Bit Country’. The brilliant duo, Harriet and Paul, put on an excellent show for service users playing favourites such as ‘9 to 5’ by Dolly Parton. The occasion was extra special for singer Harriet as she is a Hightown Support Worker, so was able to perform for people she provides support to on a daily basis.
Much to the party goers delight, Head of Care and Supported Housing in Bucks at Hightown, Sebastian Moh, joined the party dressed as Father Christmas!
Sebastian Moh, Head of Care and Supported Housing in Bucks, said:
“It was an absolute pleasure to join in the festivities at this Hightown Care and Support event. We recognise the importance of promoting independence and wellbeing amongst the people we support. The party was a great opportunity to celebrate the wonderful achievements of our service users this past year, and to bring them together to create and develop relationships with one another. We are excited to see what the New Year brings for all our wonderful staff and service users!”
David, care and support service user, said:
“I really enjoyed the event! I thought the food was good and the music was great. My favourite bit was the quiz, it was a bit hard, but I’m very happy I won a prize.”
Susan, independent supported living resident, said:
“The party was a 10 out of 10 and a bit more!”
