This christmas there will be families that cannot afford to have a meal together, children that have no presents to open.
This christmas I want to give something back, and make a small difference to someones day.
My husband is a chef by trade, my children are old enough to understand some of the cruel realities of the world and together we are going to cook christmas dinner for families less fortunate than ourselves.
Our initial goal is to provide a christmas dinner to a minimum of 50 people, if funds and volunteers allow, we will increase this number. We are looking to provide a 2 course meal consisting of a cooked dinner with meat, potatoes, vegetables, yorkshire pudding and gravy, followed by a pudding such as apple pie and custard.
We are also looking at providing people with practical items such as warm clothing, gloves, socks, hats, scarfs, toiletries, blankets and where possible, a small christmas present. We are also starting to prepare xmas eve boxes for all the children which will contain some nice treats and if funds allow new pjs and a xmas book.
We as a family of 5 can only do so much and this is where you all come in. Every little helps, every £ raised will go to this cause. Please help us make this possible.
We have lowered our target as we have now secured donations for all the food. This means that every penny raised will go towards gifts and practical items for the families.
Thank You and Merry Christmas.

The page has now been updated and we are just awaiting the final sign off on the date and venue and this can then be shared more widely. I have now had it confirmed that all of the food will be donated to us so I have also cut the target in half.
