Christmas in the
Family Services
This year the Family Services Christmas party was better than ever.
Santa arrived with one of his trusted elves to give out lots of
wonderful presents. We hope none of the children are reading this
Newsletter as we would like to thank staff members, Mark
Stipanovsky, for being Santa, and Ines Kabula who was his elf. After
eating mountains of food, parents were encouraged to join in the
dancing and games with their children to burn off the extra calories.
We would like to thank Our Lady Help of Christians,
Rickmansworth, and the Westminster Cathedral Choir School who
donated many of the gifts, and the Junior League of London who
provided hampers filled with food, toiletries and toys for every family
and we are also extremely grateful for the regular monthly donations
of food from St Augustine’s Church in High Wycombe.
In addition to our own party, 100 children from the Family Services
were invited to a Christmas party organised by the London Scottish
Regiment on Horseferry Road where everyone had a great time,
especially as their older brothers and sisters were also able to attend.

Celebrity visits with BBC Children
In Need and Comic Relief
Last November saw two celebrity visits to the Centre organised
through BBC Children In Need and Comic Relief.
BBC Children In Need have supported the
work of the Family Services since 2005. As part
of the build up to their annual televised appeal
on 14th November, they approached us to
see whether former Atomic Kitten and winner
of Celebrity Masterchef 2008, Liz McClarnon,
could spend a morning with the parents and
children in the Family Centre.
Liz had a fantastic time playing with the children
and being painted all the colours of the rainbow
with special (and easily removable) foam paint.
She was also able to listen to the stories their
parents told her, which gave her an insight into
their lives in often inadequate and overcrowded
conditions. In fact Liz was so touched she made
sure we received a huge box of toys from
Hamleys a couple of days later. The children
were absolutely delighted with their new fairy
dresses and joined together to paint a very
special thank you card to Liz. Just afterwards, we
were contacted by Comic Relief to see whether
Rod Stewart’s daughter, Kimberley, could visit as     Liz McClarnon and Evie Fleming

of the work for herself. Comic Relief have been
involved in the Centre since 1993 and this
year’s grant is earmarked to the work of the

Kitty and Lillie make a mint
Kitty (9) and Lillie (11) Toon raised
over £500 for the Centre by
asking their friends and family to
make a donation rather than give
them a gift at their recent joint
birthday party.
The girls first heard of the Centre from their
father Nick who regularly runs in the London
10K on our behalf. “We were inviting a lot of
people to our disco and it seemed silly to ask
for presents.”
”Our school has raised funds for the Centre
previously and Mum and Dad suggested we
gave the money to a charity we knew so the
natural choice was the Cardinal Hume Centre.”
The party was in the school hall where we had
a DJ, hotdogs, crisps and a chocolate fountain.
We invited our classmates and also our friends
from Donhead Lodge school.

  casestudy... Gazmen’s Story
   Gazmen Duraku-Hodie,18, originally
   from Kosovo, came to England to live
   with his father; unfortunately he was
   taken into care at the age of 6. He
   came to the Centre when he was 17
   to start to live semi-independently.
   Gazmen had the opportunity to travel to
   the Gambia with Westminster Social
   Services to take part in an ‘identify
   programme’ which allowed the young
   people from both countries to show the
   other what made them who they are.
   Gazmen believes this trip has changed his
   life. “We were working with people aged
   between 18 and 19 who gave us a
   presentation about their lives. This showed us
   everything that was important to them in
   their lives. The contrast to ours was amazing.
   There were no rap or football stars, no
