Winter Holidays 2015

Winter Holidays 2015

From 17 to 24 February our winter holidays took place for children from the Family care assistance center SPUTNIK (former Orphanage №4), and children’s home №28, orphanage graduates and volunteers.

The children mastered snowboard,


the art of ceramics and felting,

played board-games.

In the week-end we performed “The Three Pigs”play based on the famous fairy-tale and adapted by Alexander Kolmanovskiy.

Tatiana Toulchinskaya visited us with a mini-lecture on the Seven Wonders of the World

and, of course, we celebrated Maslennitsa and enjoyed pancakes.

We are grateful to organizers of all the New Year fairs and to all those who donated to our Art Center. All the funds raised at these fairs were invested in this winter camp. We express our gratitude to “Gruzovichkoff” company for the free transportation of the camp equipment, Crazy Panda company – for granted helmets for snowboarding and mountain skiing, Dixy Supermarket chain with their programme “Caring neighbours” – for financial help.
