We love Christmas in Thurso! We now have two working groups making sure that everything is covered for the Christmas festivities and that Christmas is a celebration for all, no matter what their circumstances are.
Thurso Christmas Lights Working Group are a new group who have taken over the mantle of arranging the Christmas Lights from maintenance to switch on, running Santa’s Grotto and fundraising for the future of the Christmas Lights.
The Thurso Community Christmas Meal has run now for the past two years. Originally part of Pay it Forward Thurso who have now amalgamated into the Trust, we will now be running the meal. Those in the know will realise it was all the same people behind it! The meal is held on Christmas Day in Thurso Youth Club and is for anyone who would like to share a community meal on Christmas Day. It is open to all from families to those who for whatever reason might be spending Christmas alone or struggling due to ill health or any other reason. We have a fantastic day, with a full three course Christmas meal, quiz, games, a gift for all. The meal is open to anyone living within Thurso and the surrounding area.
In addition to this, there is Trader’s Day which we help to promote, a fantastic social day with special offers and usually a wee tipple or a raffle in most of the shops.
