CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS

Dinar_Nadal

Christmas dates are always special in the foundation, we like to meet with all the persons of the entity to celebrate Christmas Dinner. Last December 22nd, we met 546 persons at Barceló Sants de Barcelona: volunteers, users, professionals and members of the Patronage enjoyed this date so expected by all of us.

On this occasion, we had the collaboration of 15 users that are part of the programme #ICanToo. They accompanied the assistants with mobility problems to the assigned tables. Likewise, they participated in the preparation of the posters of the Christmas Cards 2018.

At dessert time, Jordi Costa, president of Som – Fundació, complimented the working team and the persons that are part of the programme #ICanToo for having been awarded with the prize Lluis Martí to the best practice of social responsibility, awarded last D3ecember, 14th by the Federació Catalana de Voluntariat Social.

Later, the 4 winners and the 6 finalists of the IV Contest of Christmas Cards received their correspondent presents and certificates.

And then it came the moment when all the lights were gone and the professionals of the foundation came in with bags full of presents to be distributed to the assistants. You can see a fragment of the choreography in the video published at our page of facebook.

We enjoyed an afternoon full of anecdotes and very emotional moments.

Thanks to everybody for making it possible!
