Jeremiah’s Journey hold Christmas party at Plumer House

Jeremiah’s Journey held their annual Christmas party here at Plumer House at the weekend with over 100 people attending the festive fun!

There were lots of activities including photo booth fun, Disney princess sing-a-longs were just the start before the star of the show – Santa Claus made an appearance giving out presents in his North Pole igloo.

Jeremiah’s Journey is a local charity that provides free support for children, young people, and their parents or carers who have or are about to experience the death of someone close to them.

CATERed provided free lunches for those attending, offering a wide selection of delicious and healthy meals for everyone present. Jeremiah bear came along at the beginning to say hello to all the children before Harris Magic astounded the crowds with some fantastic sleight of hand.

Tracy Baker, Events and Community Fundraiser from Jeremiah’s Journey said: “It was an absolutely fantastic afternoon with some of the children and young people and their families for our Christmas party.

“I’d really like to thank Cloud9 Photo Booths for supplying us with their booth and props and Plymouth Party Princesses for bringing us some Disney magic on the day.

“It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of PCH who let us celebrate using their facilities and thanks to Cate and Ed who joined us from CATERed and supplied the food for our event. Everyone really enjoyed and the visit from Santa ensured that everyone who attended received a selection box with were kindly donated by the customers at Plymstock Santander.” 

Jay Vickers, Senior Communications Officer for PCH said: “It was great that we could offer the facilities here at Plumer House to Jeremiah’s Journey as it offered them a great space to work in. We really enjoy supporting such a great charity this year and we like to help where we can.”

Jeremiah’s Journey was established in 1996 by four professionals who wanted to use their skills to help local children through a difficult life experience. Jeremiah Bear was born when Dr Sheila Cassidy, one of the founders of the charity had a great love of teddy bears and using their universal appeal wrote a story about a family of bears to help children of all ages explore the journey through grief.
