Hello there :)
We need your help to give care leavers in Ellesmere Port the Christmas Day they deserve but seldom get.
How will we do this, we hear you ask?
Well, we’re putting together a Christmas Dinner project that will provide 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 these words, by Lemn Sissay, will help. Lemn is the inspiration behind our Christmas Dinner project and he set up the Lemn Sissay Foundation to make events like this possible all over the UK.
"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.
