Free Community Christmas Day Meal 2019
We did it
On 8th January 2020 we successfully raised £808 with 40 supporters in 42 days

We would like to raise £550 towards the cost of our free community Christmas Day meal for people down on their luck or home alone.

New stretch target

Any extra money will go into future community meals to help bring our local community together and also provide after schools clubs for disadvantaged kids.  We would love to start up a Forest school - an outdoor club connecting with nature and do some bread-making workshops too with our outdoor bread oven.  Dream big my friends!


Every year for the past 13 years we've been running a free Christmas day meal for between 80-100 people down on their luck or home alone on the 25th December in Belfast.  And every year we are overwhelmed by support from businesses and individuals who share their time to volunteer, give us food or donate money.  People are soooo generous and we are always left feeling humbled and grateful for the support.  This is an opportunity to share in that and spread some festive cheer - and help us cover the costs of food on the day.

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
