On 8th December 2013 CACH annual Christmas Party, two volunteers from Mother’s Bridge Love have participated in organizing a party for more than 20 families in St Fainth’s Hall in west London.
MBL volunteers Wenling and Xiuyu arrived at the 122 Windmill Lane, Brentford at 2:00 o’clock. They started the preparation with the sponsors Elisabeth and other CHCH volunteers. With the coming of family and children, the atmosphere of church was beginning to warm up. The children were starting say hello to each other, which was leaded by their parents, some of the young children were a little bit shy at the beginning but with time going they were being more and more relaxed. MBL volunteers were responsible for guiding children to drawing cards and making Christmas cards. Most of the children made the Christmas cards by themselves individually.
Ms Elisabeth, the coordinator of CACH West London Group, gave a speech on the Christmas party, and showed her thanks to The Mothers’ Bridge of Love. She also invited one of the MBL volunteers to share her volunteering experience in MBL. Later, Qingqing was giving a performance about Chinese traditional dancing. During the Christmas Party, Wenling and Xiuyu had a lovely chat with a couple of families, they explained who MBL is and what MBL does, and also showed some pictures about MBL’s previous. We hope more and more people and families will join our big MBL family.
The party was finished by a raffle, which aimed to raise money for a Bosnian Orphanage. It was a really meaningful chance for both Wenling and Xiuyu, as this was their first time to participate MBL’s activities; it was also an unforgettable experience for them to understand family, children, the love beyond the nationalities, and the essence of human nature.
As Weling said:” The most important thing I have felt during this activity is, we need pay more attention on Children’s inner feeling and their character buildings. Children would be more outgoing after participating those kind of activities “; “Children’ parents do their best to provide the better growth environment.”

2013 年12月8日，由两名来自母爱桥的志愿者参与到由伦敦西部CACH 组织的一年一度圣诞派对。 此次活动由CACH West London Group发起，母爱桥作为主办方参与者，也积极的加入到其中。
当天，由来自伦敦西部大约20多个家庭参与到了活动当中。MBL志愿者文羚和秀玉于当天下午2；00到达了主办地点St Faith’s Hall, 122 Windmill Lane, Brentford, London. 并于主办方COCH 发起人Elisabeth和其他来自COCH的志愿着一同布置了教堂和桌椅画笔卡片的摆放， 文羚和秀玉主要负责引导孩子制作圣诞卡片。
2：30pm， 随着家庭们的到来，教堂里逐渐热闹起来，孩子们在大人的带领下互相打招呼Say Hello，年纪较小的孩子起初有些害羞，但随大人们的鼓励，孩子们也越来越放松。MBL志愿者们开始带领小朋友们做活动，指导孩子们进行涂画并制作圣诞卡片。孩子们都很独立，她们大多数都自己完成了绘画和卡片的制作，这是在志愿者没有想到的。
3:30pm， 由Elisabeth 为大家做了开场白，演讲中Elisabeth答谢了母爱桥的支持，并且邀请了MBL的志愿者上台与大家交流母爱桥的经验和理念。稍后Elisabeth 的小女儿Qingqing 为大家带来了优美的中国古典舞蹈。 在休息时间，文羚和秀玉与收养家庭的家长亲切交谈，并且向他们介绍了母爱桥慈善组织和以往的收养家庭活动，希望能让更多的家庭了解到母爱桥，并且加入到我们母爱桥的大家庭。
