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.

The Christmas Day Dinner Richmond is organised by an informal group of volunteers. Donations to this crowdfunder will be managed by our generous charity partner, the Richmond Parish Lands Charity.

    So with 26 days until Christmas Day we’ve now reached £4,000! Thanks again to all our incredible supporters in the local community and beyond. Your donations will help ensure all our guests have a very memorable Christmas Day. There’s still plenty for Santa’s elves on the steering group to do sorting out the venue, food, entertainment, presents, cabs, but its all under control (we hope)!

    So we've now reached £2,000! Thank you so much to everybody that has donated. There are now only 40 days until Christmas Day so the steering group are working extra hard sorting out the venue, food, entertainment, presents, cabs, etc. Still, lots to do, but none of it would be possible without the generous support of our fantastic community. Thank you again.
