Weʼve raised £680 to provide a Christmas Day meal to those who may not be expecting visitors this year or for whom the day may otherwise be a struggle.

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.
While many of us celebrate Christmas with friends and family there are some members of our community who for whatever reason may be spending the day alone or Christmas Day is a struggle for them. Family who are unable to make it home for Christmas, ill health, mobility issues, isolation, bereavement or financial issues can all affect Christmas Day for many. Last year, we had a fantastic Christmas Day thanks to your donations and voluntary support with 40 people attending. We'd like to go even bigger and better! We have a new venue which will help with the catering side of things and lessons learned from last year e.g. Don't appeal for Puddings on Christmas Eve as dozens will arrive, get takeaway boxes so all can have a meal reheated in their homes on Boxing Day and get pre-prepared veg!
We'd love to have your support again. We appreciate every single penny. Your donations go towards the meal on Christmas Day and providing all who attend with a small Christmas Gift.
Pay it Forward Thurso!
