Linx Bring Winter Wonderland to Unity City Academy

By Published December 03, 2019

THERE'S a festive treat in store at Unity City Academy in the run-up to Christmas - and everyone's invited.

The Hemlington Linx Detached Youth Work Project and the One Chance student group from UCA are putting on a Christmas Winter Wonderland on Friday, December 6.

They've raised more than £2,000 to deliver a seasonal spectacular packed with lots of fun activities for all the family.

An outdoor ice skating rink, Santa's Grotto and Christmas snow machine are sure to pull in the crowds, alongside art and craft workshops and food stalls, as well as a range of organisations on hand with information, advice and guidance.

The Winder Wonderland will be open to all schools, community groups and training providers from 11am to 3pm, before throwing open its doors to the public from 3pm to 6pm.

Admission is free, while skating sessions will cost £3 and entry to Santa's Grotto £2.

All funds raised during the Christmas Winter Wonderland will be donated to Zoe's Place Baby Hospice, the Teesside Family Foundation, the MAIN autism support charity and the Young Carers project.

Linx Senior Youth Worker Ricky Tomlinson said: "The young people have worked incredibly hard to plan and organise this event, and I'm sure it will be a huge success.

"Everyone's invited to come along and enjoy their celebration of the festive season, and there are fun activities and entertainment lined up for all ages.

"There's also a great group of local charities that will benefit from all the money raised on the day - I can't think of a better incentive for people to come along and join in the fun.”
