    Story

    I work for Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead (VARB) and myself, family, friends and the help of lots of volunteers will be holding a Christmas Day lunch for anyone who faces Christmas alone, living in the Reigate & Banstead area. This will be for those who are elderly or vulnerable or single parent familes. We would really appreciate you giving what you can to help us make Christmas Day special to those who are less fortunate.

      THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION TO VARB’S FESTIVE FEAST, it was a great success. Over 100 guests and volunteers came together to prepare and enjoy a Christmas feast with all the trimmings! Here are some of their comments: “It was a very happy occasion. Had it not been for you I would have had a lonely day at home”. “We show appreciation for the beautiful Christmas dinner and gifts we enjoyed. We cannot thank you enough.” Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Less than 350 days to the next one!

      Thank you to all those who have donated, it is greatly appreciated. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of people who are willing to donate. We now have a venue, St Mark's Church in Reigate so this is a huge relief, and a catchy name "VARB's Festive Feast". Please continue to donate, the event won't be able to go ahead without the funds.
