Thanks so much for finding us. The good news is that despite the huge challenges of 2020 we will be creating another magical Christmas Day Dinner for some brilliant, resilient young people who’ve gone through the care system, in December this year.
You can help us in so many ways:
Could you make a donation to the event or perhaps volunteer to join one of the committees we are setting up? If you can, please email email@example.com and get in touch, although all our volunteer opportunities are now filled for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Last December, almost 60 young people were invited to a stunning location in the heart of Richmond borough to enjoy a scrumptious and magical Christmas Day Dinner. With the restrictions in place this year we will be delivering Christmas this year… with your help.
It won’t be exactly the same as 2019 – for obvious reasons – but we’ll be delivering the spirit of Christmas to 50 care leavers across Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow. From start to finish, we’re aiming to deliver a very special day for people who may never have had that experience before or had had very negative experiences at Christmas. The team at Richmond Council put together this fantastic video of Sian (the chair of our group) and Emily, one of our guests, which tells you everything you need to know:

Once again, we’re determined to create a memorable day, complete with traditional Christmas lunch, lovely gifts and festive fun.
“One of the key things we needed was presents for these young adults and they arrived in their droves. Many have never had presents at Christmas before so we are appealing to local business to provide these presents, especially ones that have that ‘wow’ effect.
“We all know people who would like to make a difference to the lives of others at Christmas – now they can by getting involved with The Christmas Dinner. A warm fuzzy feeling is guaranteed.”
