Following our first Ellesmere Port Care Leavers Christmas Dinner last year, we need your help to make sure this year is just as magical for those care leavers who would otherwise be on their own on Christmas Day.
We are a team of hardworking, committed volunteers who are driven by the belief that no care leaver should feel alone at Christmas. All our joint energies are going into planning a fun-filled, special Christmas Day including a tip-top Christmas dinner with all the trimmings for care leavers aged 18-27 years old. We’ll all doing this for free, giving up our time and calling in favours, but we need a little help to raise the funds we need to pull this off. Your donation will help fund the dinner, buy decorations and provide transport for our guests as well as a few fabulous presents.
So, if you could find it in your heart, and pocket, to pledge some money we’d be most grateful.
If you need any more convincing hopefully this video from last year will help – http://www.actiontransporttheatre.org/EPChristmasDinner
Lemn Sissay, who is the inspiration behind our Christmas Dinner project, and the many others taking place across the country simply says this
"Too often Christmas day is a reminder of everything they never had. Often it’s a dreaded day. The Christmas Dinner is a life changing, lifesaving experience of warmth in abundance. A time to have a good laugh, make new friends and feel valued."
With your help we can we can make this happen.
Big love and big thanks,
The Ellesmere Port Steering Group :)
