Why I’m committed to Christmas Day Richmond – by Dee Marshall

Several years ago I was listening to a radio programme discussing care leavers and in particular what was an ‘appropriate’ age for them to leave care and fend for themselves. (Do any of us ever feel ready for that?!)

I was full of admiration for these young people, many of whom had overcome an extremely difficult start in life.

So when I heard about this brilliant initiative I jumped at the chance to help provide the Christmas extravaganza they deserve! 

Together let’s spread the joy of Christmas! It’s our chance to show we care.

Everything happens because of our wonderful volunteers. We would love you to get involved with the Richmond Christmas Day Dinner in so many ways:
