On Sunday 8th December we held our annual Carol Concert at St Mary’s Church in Thatcham and raised £1945.13 at the event to help us to continue supporting children with special needs and their families.

Families from Swings & Smiles and supporters attended the concert, where they were treated to fantastic performances from the Swings & Smiles Music Club and 4th Thatcham Cub Pack, Castle School Choir and Kennet School Choir. They also heard readings, including a special reading from two siblings who use the SIBSupport service, and had the chance to join in with some favourite carols.

After the concert everyone enjoyed delicious mince pies which were supplied by Warings Bakery, as well as cakes and biscuits which were made by the Swings & Smiles Cooking Club. We were very lucky to be supported by sponsors W.W. Giles, Donnington New Homes, Mellor's Garage and Calcot Services for Children.
