A FAMILY fun Christmas party will be raising money for two children’s charity causes this week.

The party at Bethel Mission Church, in Halesowen, starts at 10am on Friday (December 1) and will feature arts and crafts, Christmas carols and even a snow disco.

As well as all the fun for children, the event is also raising money for the work of Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Baby Basics – a volunteer-led project which supports new mothers and families who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby.

Nikki Naper, one of the event organisers, said: “We are also holding a raffle and are looking to local businesses to donate prizes – be it big or small – so if anyone can be of any help, please get in touch.”

To donate a raffle prize to the event, email Nikki at nnapper@icloud.com.
