Rainbows from Doddington, Manea and March enjoyed a Christmas sleepover at Trinity Church, March.

During the adventure the 20 girls ate a traditional turkey dinner and made reindeer biscuits, candle cakes, snowman table decorations and Christmas stockings.

If that was not enough, they received a visit from Santa and played party games.

The event co-ordinator, Paula Syred, said: “The sleepover was a great chance for the girls aged five to seven to get away and enjoy each other’s company in a safe, girl-only space.

“All the girls told me how much they enjoyed themselves. For some it was the first time away from parents and it is great to see their confidence grow.”
