Christmas light switch on at The Arc

On Thursday 30 November, The Arc in Westcliff, Scunthorpe held a Christmas light switch on to kick off their month of festive events.

Over 150 local people attended, with festive treats available from the café, a chance to chat to colleagues about what goes on at The Arc and even a visit from some festive alpacas.

There are more festive activities planned at The Arc in the run up to Christmas including breakfast with Santa, Christmas crafts and games.

Victoria Bradshaw, Activities & Families Coordinator, said “It’s was amazing to see such a good turnout again this year, we know it’s an event that the local community really enjoys and it’s nice to see lots of people getting together and feeling festive.

“It’s important to us to host events like this, not only to bring the community together, but also to introduce new people to The Arc that might not know what we do here or what support they can get from visiting us.

“We’ve got lots more planned and there’ll be loads going on in 2024 too, so if you’d like to know more why not call in and visit us to see what we do.” ​​​​​​​
