“I have worked with care leavers for the last eight years and I absolutely love getting to know the young people, spending time with them and supporting them.
“But every year, when our doors closed for the Christmas period, it broke my heart to know that so many of them would be spending it alone.
“Christmas is such a family time and through no fault of their own many are denied this experience. I was so happy to learn that this amazing project was happening in Richmond this year and there was no way I could not get involved!
“Every day since I started volunteering I’ve been blown away by the continuous flow of kind gestures and contributions from our wonderful community. It feels like an incredible thing to be a part of.”
