Last week, Positive Futures, with the help of Kings Church, Bangor and the Church’s Friends Group, gave people the opportunity to create a Christmas decoration with a difference at a Gingerbread House ‘Make Off’ event in the church hall as part of our annual ‘Elfy Living’ Campaign.
Following a short demonstration from Positive Futures resident baker Gemma Murray, who works as a project manager for the charity, guest were invited to build and decorate their own houses using the materials provided. The gingerbread and icing had all been freshly made by Gemma – who previously worked as a professional chef.
A special visitor, Santa Claus, arrived to help Tiny McJingles (better know as Positive Futures Managing Director Dermot Parsons) hand out a series of spot prizes. Santa went on to pull the winning numbers for the raffle at the event.
The standard of building and decoration was very high and everyone seemed to enjoy the event and proudly took their creations home with them at the end.
