If you live around Muswell Hill, you may remember an email around Christmas time asking you to get down to the Muswell Hill “Little Waitrose” as the North London Deaf Children’s society had been featured in the Community Matters token scheme.
We are delighted to tell you all that Waitrose Muswell Hill has donated £564 to our group to help us run activities! This money will make so much difference to the activities, outings and events that we run for deaf children all over North London.
Being let down by our regular venue just days before our Halloween party could have been an epic disaster, but fortunately Martin Primary school stepped in to accommodate us – and the afternoon was a great success.
It wasn’t only the children who got into the spirit of things, as many parents dressed up too and in some cases it wasn’t easy working out who was beneath the make-up and wigs! But hats off – literally – to the younger members who looked fabulously spooky!
A big thanks to Susan Daniels, Chief Executive of NDCS, who came along to judge the fancy dress parade and had great difficulty in picking winners due to the high standard of costumes.
No NLDCS party is complete without plenty of food, and the jacket potatoes and other goodies went down a treat, so thanks also to everyone who contributed ghoulish grub and helped to make the hall look so atmospheric.
