On Wednesday, December 21, Sanctuary London celebrated their 10th Christmas party! It was an absolutely wonderful evening full of good food, gifts, and best of all, amazing company. We feel so blessed to be able to celebrate the birth of our Saviour together with our wonderful friends and family.
Our talent show went off really well, and featured some of our very own amazing friends! Laura and Beth serenaded us, Gil made us chuckle with his rendition of 12 Days of Christmas (in 12 different voices), and the evening wouldn't be complete without our friend Benjamin singing his yearly Christmas Carol! Minute to Win It games rounded out the event and everyone had a blast!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank a few key players in making our evening possible!
A huge thank you to Patrick Dunham, Kristen and Chris Miniotas, Emily Hahn, Brittney Nolan and the Meeting House, Helen and Gary Nash, James McLeod, Debbie, Gateway Church, Cheryl Chalmers, Bob and Marie Spindler, Shirley Spindler, Kristen and Steve Cousins, Byron Community Church, Nicole Arujo, and Lena Clelland! Without your wonderful and generous donations, help, and support our Christmas party would not have been possible.
A big thank you to Debra Franke of Debra Franke Photography for all of these beautiful pictures!
We would also like to highlight a few wonderful children who went above and beyond. Their hearts and kindness are an inspiration!
- Two children, grades 1 and 3 collected over 1800 children's gifts. The children at Sanctuary were just a few of the hundreds of children that they were able to support.
- A 10 year old daughter had a birthday party recently. Instead of gifts for herself, she asked her friends to bring gifts for our friends at Sanctuary
- Another friend of Sanctuary sent along a cheque from their daughter who gave Sanctuary her birthday gift money!
It's incredible to see the outpouring of love and support at this time of year! Thank you to all who supported us, and came out. The family of Sanctuary London is blessed to have friends like you!
