Story

Richmond Christmas Day Dinner is now in it's fifth year! This is only possible due to the incredible generosity of the local community.

Our aim is to bring together 50 care leavers from Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow on Christmas Day. Our guests are care leavers, aged 18-25 who have spent all or some of their childhood in care and now live independently. They are bright, young, resilient people who may otherwise spend Christmas Day alone. Some of our guest have been coming every year since the first year and it is now a Christmas tradition for them.

Every year, everything is donated, from time and trees, to mince pies and crackers, wrapping skills and presents. Our guests always tell us they are blown away by the care, warmth, effort and hospitality provided by the event. Last year we were able to deliver Christmas to them but this year we are very hopeful that we will all be under the same roof again celebrating Christmas together.

Your donation goes much further than enabling us to buy presents and ingredients for dinner. It shows our guests that they are visible, valued and cared for by their community. With your help, we’ll create some beautiful Christmas memories to last a lifetime.

Do check out christmasdayrichmond.com or follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter in the countdown to Christmas.

£5 will buy 5 present sacks to hold our wonderful gifts

£15 will provide a hamper of essential foods and toiletries for our young care leavers

£25 will buy a Netflix voucher so our deserving guests can enjoy 4 months of films and TV shows

£50 will put a hot Christmas meal on the table for 5 guests

£100 would treat five young care leavers to a Just Eat voucher for a takeaway treat

£200 can buy one care leaver a star present! We'll keep this one under wraps for now so not to spoil the surprise!

Any surplus donations will be used to meet the needs of local care leavers throughout the year. A minimal amount will be used to cover admin costs.
