‘Door of Hope’ for Kirkton Community

A Dundee community is pulling together to (quite literally) create a Christmas to remember!

The Attic, which works with children, young people and families in Kirkton is to host a fortnight-long Christmas exhibition.  ‘Door of Hope’, which will run from 7-18 December, will showcase the creations of local people who attend The Attic’s weekly clubs and activities.

Visitors can also head outside into the community garden, decorated with lights, festive grafitti and a Christmas tree and enjoy a free, hot drink courtesy of Blend Coffee Shop in Dundee’s Reform Street.

On Saturday 12 December, Kirkton’s younger children can enjoy a visit to Santa’s Grotto, collecting a present before they leave.

The Yard Brings Christmas Home

Disabled children across Scotland are in for a festive treat, as they await personalised videos and letters from the man himself!

In the absence of parties, The Yard invited the families it supports to sign up for a free personalised greeting from Santa, in the form of a hand-written letter or video, filmed within The Yard’s outdoor Solardome-turned-grotto!

The video also features ‘Signalong’, a key word sign-supported communication system based on British Sign Language used by people with additional speech, language and communication needs.

Although the deadline for videos has now passed, there is still a chance to sign up for a personalised letter in return for a donation to The Yard.  By doing so, families will help support The Yard’s ongoing efforts to provide both in-person and online support for families across all three of its centres in Edinburgh, Kirkcaldy and Dundee.
