Christmas can be a difficult time of year for some people.

I am hoping to provide a free Lunch on Christmas Day 2019 for 60 guests - be that an elderly person / couple; younger adults with no family or parents who are on their own with children.

Having raised 2 children by myself, I understand how hard Christmas can be but I had family and friends around me; some people are not that lucky and working with adults on a daily basis who are struggling financially through unemployment or ill health or who socially isolated makes what should be a happy time of year, quite stressful and lonely.

I have secured a venue and use of a kitchen; a chef and volunteers to help out with decorating the hall; prepping; cooking and serving the lunch; and transport for those that need it.

Funds are needed to purchase the food and beverages; table linens; possibly extra crockery and cutlery; and items to provide each guest with a small hamper or a gift to take home; any remaining funds will be donated to a local community project.

By hosting this event, I am hoping that Christmas Day 2019 will be better than it may have been previously for some; and that it can act as a catalyst for people to connect within their community and create connections that last well beyond the one day.

Many thanks,
