Thanks so much for finding us. The good news is that despite the huge challenges of recent years we will be creating another magical Christmas Day Dinner for some brilliant, resilient young people who’ve gone through the care system, this December.
Everything happens because of our wonderful volunteers. We would love you to get involved with the Richmond Christmas Day Dinner in so many ways:
Perhaps you 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 – we’d love to hear from you.
Would you like to help us wrap presents for our guests? Sign up to one of the joyous sessions of wrapping when we inject more love into the gifts. There are lots of sessions on offer so click here to find yours.
Last December, almost 60 young people were enjoyed a socially-distanced scrumptious and magical Christmas Day Dinner. With or without any restrictions in place this year we will be delivering Christmas this year… with your help.
Whatever challenges we are faced with this time around we’ll be delivering the spirit of Christmas to around 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 about the Richmond Christmas Day Dinner:

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.”

Stop press…there is a lovely shop on Church Street, Twickenham – The Hare and the Moon – that holds a gift list for us if you click here – checkout code ‘Richmond’. Or you can go in and choose something you like and they will hold on to and distribute it to us nearer the event.
Happy faces on at the Christmas Day Richmond
