At the beginning of December 2015, together with our friends, Beverīna County Craftsmen, we organised Christmas charity workshops at all three schools in our County. Children, their teachers and parents helped us to prepare presents for lonely senior citizens in our County. We made soy wax candles and Christmas cards for them. Children also baked gingerbread cookies - both for the seniors and for themselves as a treat for their good deed.
Having done some work for others the participants had a possibility to make something for themselves - in this case it was a yarn Christmas angel.
We are very grateful to all our diligent helpers and supporters, to NGO Rural Partnership Ziemeļgauja for financing or the materials and workshop organisation and to the County Council for taking the presents to their addressees. We hope that our presents, small though they were, brightened someone's winter evenings.
