Support NHS charity with Christmas wreath workshop

PEOPLE can support an NHS charity and learn a seasonal new skill by getting involved in a Christmas wreath workshop.

Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity has teamed up with experts at Floral Expressions and sponsors Rotherham Lions Club to host the Yuletide event.

Rachael Dawes, head of fundraising at the charity, said: “Not only is our Christmas Wreath Making Workshop a chance to learn a new skill and create a beautiful, bespoke holiday decoration, it’s an opportunity to support your local NHS charity while having a great night out, too.

“We’d love to celebrate the build-up to Christmas with you and can’t wait to see everyone’s wonderful wreaths.”

Participants can expect quality materials to help make their wreaths, take part in the Christmas raffle as well as being treated to a hot brew and cake.

The event is sponsored by the Rotherham Lions Club New2U shop, on Rawmarsh Hill, Parkgate.

Pete Machin, club secretary, said: “Christmas is always a great time of year for the Rotherham Lions, whether we’re taking our Santa sleigh around the neighbourhood or donating chocolate selection boxes to youngsters spending Christmas at Rotherham Hospital.
