Children and Young Adults Christmas Party!Umbrella Christmas Party

Thank you to everyone who attended the Christmas Party yesterday. We think it was the best one yet. The children and young adults had such a great time meeting santa and enjoying the entertainment.

It wouldn't have been possible to host such a great event without the amazing support from staff, volunteers and those who made doantions.

We also managed to raise over £300 which will go towards the party next year.



We'd like to say an enormous Thank You to everyone who raises funds for us...

So many incredible people have come forward this year to raise funds for Umbrella.  We thought it was only right to give a special thank you to you all.

We have a new 'Thank You To....' page which now pays thanks to all fundraisers, but we wanted to dedicate our home page to all the wonderful people who's marathons, zip wire challenges, tin shaking, building, cycling, auctions and countless other efforst and challenges help us to provide our fantastic services.

We couldn't do it without you. X
