Jenny LeLean, Head of Charity, Caritas Portsmouth shares news of recent Caritas Holiday Clubs

Two holiday clubs were run during the Christmas holidays in Southampton parishes with 20 children participating in a variety of activities including food preparation, art, crafts and games.

The days began with chopping vegetables to make soup and followed by creating their own toilet roll Christmas trees, marshmallow snowmen and pretzel wreathes.  After a lunch of vegetable soup and sandwiches, the afternoon sessions were filled with group games. Due to a generous donation by The Bookmark Team, every participant received a free giveaway storybook- ‘Corner Story’ at the end of the day. The children left some great feedback and parents grateful to have some activities for their children in the run up to Christmas.

  • It is a fun club and I really liked it
  • It was awesome.
  • It was the best and would like to come again!

We’d would like to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers who made these events possible.

Holiday clubs or family activity drop-in sessions are a great way to get to now some of the families in your community. Get in touch if you would like to set one up in your parish at
