Struell Lodge in Downpatrick has hosted a magical Winter Wonderland event for service users and their families to celebrate Christmas with their loved ones.  Santa arrived on his sleigh and met with children in his grotto with staff dressing up for the occasion!

Music, games, entertainment, Tombola prizes and a ‘Penny’s for Candy’ sweet stall entertained the families and service users.   An incredible £1789.00 was raised from the event which will go towards the service in providing additional resources.

A large donation of 60 raffle prizes received from the local community of Downpatrick, Castlewellan and Newcastle areas included vouchers for local businesses, restaurants, cafes, bars, beauty salons and hairdressers.  Newry Mourne and Down District Council donated £200 and supplied chairs, tables and gazebos.  Everyone at Struell Lodge would like to thank everyone who supported this event, it is very much appreciated.

A huge thank you also goes to the staff team for their continued hard work in making this such a successful event for the service and service users. Also to the families for their continued support particularly throughout the COVID pandemic.

This was an outdoor event with Covid measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.

Struell Lodge & Supported Living Service is a Trust run service providing support to adults with learning disabilities.
