Weʼre raising £2,000 to give 50 young care leavers a Christmas Day to remember
- London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, 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.
On 25 December 2017 a group of very special people came to Richmond to celebrate Christmas. Our guests were all young people who had grown up in care, didn't have families to go to, and faced Christmas alone.
We had a magical day in a stunning location in the heart of the borough, complete with a scrumptious homemade Christmas dinner, games, crafts, activities and chocolate. Every guest received a selection of carefully chosen gifts and a fabulous Christmas stocking to take home.
This was achieved thanks to the many, many wonderful people who generously donated food, gifts and cash , or spent hours wrapping and prepping and clearing up, and the generosity of companies which donated their goods and services for free.
And now we are doing it all again.
Can you help? A donation will help pay for all the bits and pieces that can't be found for free, and we will be truly grateful.
