A great new task tonight, with the wonderful Christmas for CAMHS, making Christmas special for Young People I in mental health units.
Our task was to create some cards for the charity to use, Christmas Cards For CAMHS. The aim is to send a homemade Christmas Card to EVERY young person receiving inpatient mental health care this Christmas.
Can we help?
Yes WE CAN!
Michael waited, eagerly to see how many turned up as there was going to be a pre run before heading to the location to get comfortable for crafting. 4 were meeting us at the task, 2 of our group were walking, whilst the rest were ready for a run. Just a short 2 (ish) km to get the blood pumping and the creative juices flowing, then we made our way over to the lovely Littleman Coffee Shop to drink coffee, eat cake and get crafty.
All we had to do was make a homemade card (or two…!), write a lovely message inside for the young person, and then post it to us via the address below to arrive by the end of November.
Michael had already been to get a lot of supplies, some of which had been donated by lovely people. At first the group seemed quite intimidated by the task, but once the coffees were flowing and people had started it was great. The worries flew away as the glue and glitter (biodegradable and plant based - of course)flew around the tables.
There were some truly wonderful cards tonight, just take a look in the pictures at the creations. And we managed a brilliant 53 cards.
Once finished, we cleaned up after ourselves before heading out into the cold night for a quick social.
