Christmas Party

Christmas Party

On Friday the 16th December we had our Christmas Party within the centre.

We played numerous games including a quiz, pass the parcel, musical chairs and the twelve days of Christmas.

The party also included a raffle, in which we were generously donated prizes from Cranston’s, Crumbs, Denton Tyres and other local business’s.

We were also very kindly donated 54 presents from Dunelm, meaning that everyone attending the party was able to leave with a gift bag full of goodies, as well as prizes they may have won throughout the day.

It was a lovely way to end the year and we hope that everyone had an amazing day.

Christmas Markets

Christmas Markets

On Friday the 2nd December, 30 Women and Staff went on a bus trip to York Christmas Markets.

We hired a coach and everyone paid a small fee towards the transport.

It was a lovely day and everyone was all spent up by the time we were back on the bus, hopefully we will plan another bus trip in the new year.

Halloween Day

Halloween Day

On Monday the 31st of October we had a Halloween Day in the centre.

The day started off with watching Hocus Pocus in the morning, followed by Hocus Pocus 2 in the afternoon. There was also a Halloween Quiz and Nibbles throughout the day, and all the women who attended thoroughly enjoyed.

We had various Halloween decorations up, some that had been made in arts and crafts. As well as a change around with the sofas to make it feel like a proper cinema day.

Gateway 4 Women Fashion Show

Gateway 4 Women Fashion Show

On Friday the 14th of October, Staff and Clients arranged a fashion show at the centre. The clothes worn were all those donated to the charity shop and the models were all women who attended the centre.

The day overall raised £400 in ticket and clothing sales, all of which were given to our charity shop in Denton Holme.

The women modelling had their hair and make-up done in the morning, before modelling the beautiful clothes that had been donated in the afternoon. Those who weren’t modelling made themselves involved by attending on the day and making various decorations during arts and crafts such as paper stars, and paper flowers that were used to make a paper flower wall.
