Case Study: Christmas Cheer
During November and early December 2020 we ran the ‘Operation Christmas Cheer’ project which aimed to spread cheer in the community. 2 groups of young people worked on the project:
Group 1: Created and distributed hearts made of yarn to organisations who worked with vulnerable people. 150 hearts were made by young people and distributed with an inspirational message.
“One lady who has had a terrible year with covid said it had cheered her up and she loves it, she put it up in her front room. Another elderly, lonely lady told us she was really touched to get it and thought it was a lovely idea. Well done OYCI!”
Group 2: A group of 12 young people met every Sunday to plan, rehearse and film a short festive film to upload on to social media. The film was viewed over 2500 times across our social platforms.
