Weʼre raising £500 to Provide a Christmas Dinner & good company for people who'd otherwise be 'home alone'
- Howden, Goole, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
So here's the thing...
We've decided we'd like to do something for people in our little Yorkshire town who might be spending Christmas Day 'Home Alone' - and that's how the idea for Christmas & Company has come about.
Howden Shire Hall have kindly agreed to host the event and several local businesses have offered valuable support - but to make this happen we will need help.
Our aim is to serve a three course Christmas dinner for maximum of 60 people, allowing folk who might otherwise be sat on their own, on what should be one of the happiest days of the year, to have a chat, share a few laughs and enjoy some 'Company at Christmas'
We don't want to exclude anyone who simply can't afford to come so rather than charge a fixed ticket price we are suggesting a minimum donation of £5 to cover food costs (and whatever else anyone would like to give) - and your donations will help to maintain, or perhaps even reduce that low price, pay for a small gift for each of our guests and increase our budget for decor and dressing.
Provide a Christmas Dinner with good company for people who would otherwise be 'home alone'
Any surplus funds will be donated to Mind, the mental health charity and to Mission Trinity, Goole who help people with food, clothing and emergency accommodation throughout the year.
Thanks for reading!
