Our Christmas Market Stall & Festive Wreath Workshop was a huge success! We raised a fantastic £672 selling our handmade crafts, Christmas cards, festive wreaths and charity merchandise. 

It was the first stall we have been able to hold since the pandemic began, so it was great to get back out in the community to show off our skills and help raise vital funds for our charity.

We would like to give a massive thank you to our members for making and crafting the many handmade items sold on the day in our activity workshops. Items sold included ceramic decorations, resin crafts, felt creations, donated items like paintings by local artist David Reid and handmade cards designed by Barbara.

We would also like to thank our volunteers and everyone who helped out on the day setting up the stall, serving customers and being general superstars!

Sarah and Lianna from our Activity Development Team hosted a fun and relaxed accessible wreath making workshop in the event space at Leeds Market. This was a first for us, as we run many workshops in our bases, so we thought we'd open up our event and invite other local third sector organisations, families and carers to join us.

The workshop taught you step-by-step how to make your own festive wreath using a mixture of freshly foraged naturals materials like holly, pine cones, dried oranges, cinnamon and berries.

The workshop raised much need funds for our charity, all attendees gave excellent feedback and people made some really impressive wreaths to take home to hang on their door. Well done Lianna and Sarah for such a successful first public event!

For those who were unable to make it on the day, many of our handmade treasures are available to purchase through our online shop.

Browse our collection, place your order and we will package up and post out to you in time for Christmas. Please note, due to the large size of our handmade festive wreaths these must be collected at a prearranged time from either our Grape Street or New Mabgate centres in Leeds. 

Thank you so much for your support. It's never been more vital and appreciated!
