2021 LWA EVENTS
- LWA Christmas Cards – on sale now
Our Christmas Cards are now on sale! There is very limited stock, so get in there quick. It’s £5* for a pack of 6 cards, there’s 3 of each design.
This year’s Christmas cards were designed by some of the children who have been supported by LWA’s County Family Service (details on the back of the card as well). Our Family Support Workers support children who have lived in homes where domestic abuse has taken place. The team give the children a space to talk about what they have been through, and through fun, creative activities help them to gain an understanding of what a healthy relationship looks like so that they can break the cycle and go on to have healthy fulfilling relationships of their own. The team also help the children to better understand and deal with their emotions, and build up their self-confidence and self-esteem. Our children have loved designing cards to help us raise money to support other children and families.
- Burns Night Supper – 22nd January 2022
We are delighted to welcome you to The Swan In The Rushes for a Burns Night Supper – prepared by a real Scots woman!
What is Burns Night?
Burns Night is annually celebrated in Scotland on or around January 25. It commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, who was born on January 25, 1759. The day also celebrates Burns’ contribution to Scottish culture. His best known work is Auld Lang Syne.
What’s the plan?
You will be piped in by a traditional Bagpiper! Then you’ll eat a delicious 3 course meal – Haggis, Neeps and Tatties will be on offer, or a main course alternative for those who don’t want haggis. Vegetarian options also available.
We’ll pipe in and toast the Haggis as is traditional, and have a few drams of whiskey we’re sure!
It’s a great night out with a Scottish twist!
Cost: £28pp (only 80 places available!)
Dress code: Lounge suits – with some tartan if you would like!
