    Story

    No one should be alone on Christmas Day and especially our elders, it makes me sad to think that someone would be alone on what should be a special time and shared, so I'm giving some of those people a community family this Christmas and making our older generation feel treasured and cared for!

    Over 40 locals have come together to create a fantastic Christmas Day filled with fun and laughter and dinner of course! We are hoping to create lasting friendships that can be carried into the new year and beyond because once you have friends you are no longer lonely!

    Seeing people happy fills me with joy and as an extra special touch to our day we would like to make sure each guest goes home with a smile on their face and a lovely gift too...your donation will make sure this is exactly what we do! If you want us to buy a gift and personalise it from you that would be great!

    Last year was such an amazing success that we would love to do it again!

    Thank you so much on behalf of all our volunteers and treasured guests! And a very Merry Christmas 🎄
