Local children enjoy Christmas party with support of local fish farm
Children at Kilchrenan, Inverinan and Dalavich (K.I.D) had a wonderful time on Saturday (7 December) at the Dalavich Village Hall, where the local K.I.Ds Children Christmas party took place, after a successful fundraising campaign supported by different community organisations.
Argyll-based trout farmer Dawnfresh, which has supported the event in previous years, contributed half of the £500 target this year.
Full of activities and games, the K.I.Ds Christmas party was a complete success as 19 children from different ages – from infants to Primary 7 – had a festive evening ahead of the school’s Christmas holidays.
The party included different craft activities, games and a buffet. The town’s Santa also appeared to give presents to all the kids attending.
Dawnfresh’s contribution was used to fund different gifts for game prizes and craft materials so the kids could do pottery painting and make their own tree decorations.
Alison Hutchins, Farming Director at Dawnfresh commented:
“At Dawnfresh, we consider ourselves to be a real part of the communities that we live and work in, so we were thrilled to be able to contribute to a really lovely Christmas project for the kids in the local community.
“Most of our team either live locally or grew up in rural communities and enjoy being involved in initiatives like the K.I.Ds Christmas party, which brings unforgettable festive memories to local youngsters.”
Georgia Todd, organiser of the K.I.Ds Christmas Party said:
“We are incredibly thankful to Dawnfresh for their generous contribution and for deciding to support the K.I.Ds Christmas party once again.
“Every year, we organise this party so that the local children and the wider community can gather and celebrate so having local companies like Dawnfresh contributing with enough funds is imperative. Without their contribution it is unlikely events like this would be possible.
