Christmas came early to Zest on Tuesday 5th December, as the Zest young adults enjoyed a range of Christmas based fun as part of the Zest X-Change Christmas party.
The evening saw the young adults dance along to their favourite festive songs with a Christmas disco, provided by Yox Rocks Roadshow, while wearing a range of Christmas jumpers and outfits.
This was followed by a number of Yuletide themed games and activities, including a special Christmas story edition of ‘pass the parcel’ which saw all the young adults receive an early Christmas gift.
Caroline Corker, activities coordinator at Zest, said: “What an absolutely wonderful evening. Everybody loved the disco and brought such energy and enthusiasm to the dancefloor.
“Thank you to Yox Rocks Roadshow for their fantastic disco and thank you to all the volunteers, carers for making this evening, but most importantly a big thank you to all the young adults for bring such life to the festive atmosphere this evening.”
