Sixth Day of ubu Christmas: Our Homemade Present Competition

This year people served by ubu decided that they wanted to join in the festive fun by having 15 days of crafting competitions leading up to Christmas. Each day has its own special theme. So far we have had some amazing entries for our competitions and today has been no exception.


This is the sixth day of our Christmas competitions. We asked the people we serve to share with us the homemade Christmas presents they have been making for their friends and family.


We were thrilled and inspired by all the effort and enthusiasm that has gone into the making of these unique gifts. Everyone who joined in the competition and all of those who have helped and supported the people we serve have made this a really special event.

Allison lives with greater independence in Newcastle, enabled and supported by ubu. She has made a Christmas stocking, a gift for one of her family members, in her arts and crafts class. Alison goes to her class almost every week and she really enjoys meeting her friends there. Alison has a lot of fun designing crafted items, and has built up a whole range of valuable skills. The Christmas sparkle contest has given her an opportunity to make something special and also to use some of the techniques she has learned in her classes.
