THE GOOD news keeps on coming for our project to give up to 50 care leavers a Christmas Day they will never forget with confirmation of a partnership with the lovely people at Big Yellow Storage for the second year running.
The UK’s favourite self storage company have been generous enough to give us room at their Twickenham branch to store everything from wrapping paper, presents and decorations ahead of the big game.
The new partnership with Big Yellow – which has high profile, easy–to–access locations across the UK -will stretch into 2018 as well so giving us a much better chance of repeating out incredible event next year too.
Big Yellow join a number of local and national organisations as recent supporters of the Richmond Christmas Day Dinner project inspired by the poet Lemn Sissay. Their generous support along with a highly motivated project team will bring a day to remember for our guests on the big day!
The main focus of the project now is to gather more presents for our guests so if you’d like to take part why not buy a present we can give out on Christmas Day. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and get in touch.
