Story

Thank you for finding us. The Richmond Christmas Day Dinner is an amazing day, actually on the 25th, for local young care leavers aged 18-25. Everything is donated, from time and trees, to mince pies and crackers, wrapping skills and presents. Our guests tell us they are blown away by the care, warmth, effort and hospitality provided by the event. These bright, young, resilient people usually have no family to go to on Christmas Day and no better offer than to spend it with other care leavers and a group of well-meaning hosts and helpers. They go away buoyed by the light touch kindness and sensitivity of our volunteers; those there on the day, and those behind the scenes who've made it all happen, including you, over the previous 4 months.

Your donation goes much further than enabling us to buy a star present or pay for transport on Christmas Day or a top up of ingredients or insurance. It shows our guests that they are visible, valued and cared for by their community.

Our goal is that no care leaver should have to spend Christmas Day alone. With your help, we’ll create another magical family-free Christmas Day. Thank you.

    Wow we've already raised over £600 which will help us give our guests a memorable Christmas Day! Thank you all very much for your generous donations. The Steering Group are all working hard on securing a venue, food, non-alcoholic drink, entertainment, presents and transport. Good progress but still a lot to do over the next 69 days. In other news, last Monday the Chrismas Day Dinner Richmond won the Mayor of London's volunteering award for building stronger communities which we are very pleased about.
