We celebrated the start of the festive season in style with our Great Christmas Light Switch On. Kibble was transformed into a glittering winter wonderland as children, young people and the care teams decorated houses inside and out to see who would win a prize.
Young people in Skye transformed their house into a dazzling Whoville, home of the Grinch, complete with Dettol sprays in place of baubles and a tangled, life-sized Grinch stuck in the Christmas tree. Of course, there was also Cindy Lou with her blonde hair towering high in the sky and Max the dog. At Arran Villa, fairly lights were strung all around the house and the kids created a video as they showed off their dazzling decorations while heartily singing Jingle Bells. Across the other houses, Santa’s red and white suit was up on the washing line ready for his Christmas eve endeavours, Christmas trees reached the height of the ceilings, and young people and staff dressed up as snowmen, elves and reindeers as they enjoyed warm hot chocolate and took lots of selfies.
With Christmas a particularly difficult time for many of the children and young people at Kibble, we ensure that there are lots of fun and special moments. With many of our original plans unable to go ahead due to this year’s circumstances, we have become even more creative in how we support local charities, foodbanks and families who are struggling this Christmas.
We hope you enjoy viewing our photo gallery below and congratulations to our lucky winners and everyone involved in bringing a little festive magic to Kibble.
