Hillcrest Trust run a wide range of seasonal programmes throughout the year, these include family, community and young people’s events that are held at Halloween, Christmas, St Patrick’s Day, Easter, The Jazz Festival and more.
As with every year, we are supporting families and individuals with our Christmas Appeal. We are asking for donations of the following:
Non perishable goods – tins, cans, jars and dried foods.
Tins of biscuits, sweets or selection boxes.
Toiletries and gift sets.
Children’s Toys or Clothes (must be new/nearly new in excellent condition).
Santas Grotto is coming to Irish Street this year as part of the Waterside Shared Village Peace IV programme.
Check out our ‘Events’ page for info on that and more Christmas activities upcoming in the next few weeks!
Jazz up your Health
We decided to add some jazz to our health and offered free health checks along with good food, good music and good company. Thanks to the Jay Dee brass band for providing our entertainment.
Hooley on the Hill
Taking place each summer we hold an action packed fortnight of festivities for the Top of the Hill area. This year included a Superhero and Princess Ball, Community Bingo, Family Fun day, Kids disco and of course the Lip Sync Battle fundraiser for the Lisa Orsi Foundation. Great craic was had by all ages!
This year we turned our offices into a Spooktacular Haunted House – thanks to all those involved in the set-up and taking part. You did a fantastic job!
