Local youngster, Sophie Goddard, and her family have enjoyed a day out at Jersey Bowl after her Christmas tree decoration caught the eye of staff at Hawksford.
The local trust company supplied a range of craft materials to the Brighter Futures groups to help make their annual Christmas tree decorations. After the success of last year’s efforts, Hawksford this year offered a prize to the child with the best creation.
‘Brighter Futures is a fantastic local charity that prides itself on bringing families closer together. Christmas should be a magical time for all families and we wanted to provide the Brighter Futures groups with some colour and sparkle again this year,’ said Rebecca Stannard, Hawksford’s marketing and communications manager.
‘We also wanted to provide a reward for the effort put into these decorations, with a family day out at Jersey Bowl for the best creation.’
Winner Sophie chose to make two snowmen – one with lots of glitter and pom poms and another with a hat made from pipe cleaners. She was delighted when she found out she had won.
‘I enjoyed making my snowmen and I had a great time bowling with Mummy and Daddy,’ she said.
The decorations were all hung on the Hawksford tree at the St Peter’s Christmas Tree Festival.
Brighter Futures works with 150 to 170 families each week, its motto is ‘Think Family’.
