The Rise Christmas party was held in early December and it was a real hit, attended by 145 Staff, volunteers and partners.
The event was hosted at the very beautiful ball room of the Mandoon Estate in Caversham. The ball room was decorated in Christmas themed colours of red, white and silver. Each table was decorated with a bouquet of roses, bonbons and even a chocolate Santa!
Justine Colyer made a very heart warming speech where she thanked the staff and volunteers for their commitment and care over the past year which has made a difference to so many people accessing our services.
The entertainment for the event was simply mystic with Matt Swift performing a magic show. His tricks were amazing; he wowed guests by bending spoons, reproducing rabbits and by making a table float in the air!
It was a fun filled evening with lots of delicious food, smiles and laughter.
The event was arranged by the Social Club – on behalf of everyone who attended, a big thanks to them for a great event!
