    Weʼve raised £232 to fund a community christmas meal and presents.

    Funded on Saturday, 1st December 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    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 aim is to provide a christmas dinner to 50 people, made up of families that would otherwise struggle to have a cooked meal and presents this christmas. We will 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 starting to prepare xmas eve boxes for all the children which will contain some nice treats, new pyjamas, a book, a hair brush, toothbrush and tooth paste, a mug and hot chocolate. Where possible we will also buy a christmas present that parents can take away and give to their child on Christmas day.

    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 will also collect donations of presents in person or via post.

    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.

    Many thanks to New Dimensions Church for being so accommodating and giving us use of the venue free of charge. Thanks also go to Newport City Homes for their involvement in making this possible. Thanks to all the volunteers that are working tirelessly behind the scenes in the run up to this event and of course to all the volunteers for giving up their time to help on the day.

    Finally, Thank You and Merry Christmas.
