Joining Twickenham’s Bruce the Butcher and Cooper’s Fruit and Veg, Accolade Wines are the latest business to partner with our event which will bring the perfect Christmas Day to 50  young people from Richmond who have just left care homes.

The goal is to mobilise the resources and generosity of the local people and businesses to put on a scrumptious and magical Christmas Day Dinner. The event will create a special day for people who may never have had that experience or even more, had very negative experiences at Christmas, to create new memories and bring people together as one ‘family’.

The project is inspired by Lemn Sissay MBE, a care leaver, and the official poet from the 2012 Olympic Games.

Lemn’s vision is to ensure this is not just a normal Christmas Day but a once in a lifetime event. Guests are picked up by taxi, driven to a top-notch venue, served the best food from a great chef, and handed a goodie bag with top-drawer goods.

Accolade Wines is the number one wine company, by volume, in Australia and by value in the United Kingdom; and the fifth largest wine company in the world, with sales of around 35 million cases a year.

They make some of the world’s best known brands, sold in over 100 countries, including Australia, the UK, Mainland Europe, South Africa, the US, Japan and China – and our Hardys brand is the number one most powerful Australian wine brand in the world!

We have more than 1,500 dedicated employees across Australia, Europe, South Africa, Asia, North America and New Zealand. Our Company headquarters are based in Reynella, South Australia.
