“Christmas has always been a big thing for me, spending time with family, laughing, eating, drinking and generally over-indulging on everything good and bad! I have always appreciated what I have because I know that not everyone is as fortunate to have such a close family to make those memories with.
Even the fraught moments, when it looks like it’s all going belly up in the kitchen….or the countless hours spent building Lego dragons! So, when I saw Sian’s post about getting involved to make Christmas Day special for others, I wanted to do what I could to help.
Even if it’s just time, I think so many of us have so much to give, but don’t always know where to channel that help, so this was the perfect solution.
I’m beyond excited to be part of such a eclectic group of volunteers, all with a common goal in mind – sourcing a venue, decorations, gifts and food, to ensure that care leavers in our community have the Christmas Day they should have; full of love, warmth and wonderful memories.”
