The lovely people at River Island have become the latest company to join with us to make a real difference to up to 50 care leavers this Christmas.
The company, which has more than 60 years of fashion retailing experience, has been extraordinarily generous by giving us five £50 vouchers for our guests.
On Christmas Day this year, inspired by the poet and care leaver himself, Lemn Sissay, we will be taking up to 50 care leavers to a secret location in Richmond Borough for a Christmas Day Dinner they will never forget.
So much of the project is in place with the community rallying together to provide everything from turkey to taxis and chefs to Christmas Trees but the last push we are having is on Christmas presents so the the news from River Island is so timely.
Anyone can provide a gift for one of our guests and while we welcome wholeheartedly the vouchers worth £250 we have gifts for every pocket. So click here and join with River Island to support the Christmas Day Dinner in Richmond.
