On Monday 22nd December 2014 Little ACORNS took on a new challenge having received an invitation from the EXCEL centre and LIVIN to help with Christmas Dinners for lonely and elderly people of Newton Aycliffe.
The youngsters helped greet the guests and kept them company if needed. They served a 3 course dinner and cleared away dishes.  This was followed by Christmas carols, coffee and mints before helping the guests to their waiting transport.
A big thank you to both Rachel at the EXCEL and Robbie from LIVIN for giving the group the chance to participate in such a lovely event, but a massive thanks goes to the youngsters 6 to 17 years old for giving up a lie in and half a day to help make a wonderful day.We really hope to be invited again this year if the event goes ahead.
