 New stretch target

We've hit our target, and are going to give 50 young care leavers in Birmingham an incredible day with your help and solidarity. 

This year has thrown up some extra challenges and we want to make sure we are as well prepared as possible for Christmas day. To make sure that Covid doesn't stop us we are going to use a bigger venue and have a bigger team working on food and volunteering on the day - to do this, we've set a stretch target to help with the extra costs, with any left over going towards more gifts for our guests. 

Your help and support is really appreciated, and will go towards us running a longer day than ever before, for more guests to make this Christmas even more special after our online Christmas Dinner last year.

Christmas is a time for celebration, family and friends; but for some people it can be a time of isolation and loneliness.

In Birmingham we want to make it a little less lonely for young care leavers aged 18-25 who for whatever reason don’t have family or friends to be with on Christmas Day. 

We want to do something to help bring together these young people on Christmas Day, and give 50 of these young people the kind of day that millions of families up and down the country will be having. 

We’ve got a great party planned, with food, presents and fun - but we need your support to make it happen. Please help us make this a special day for young care leavers in Birmingham.

Your money could help in the following ways:

  • For £50 you could support a young person to have a fantastic three course Christmas Dinner and a supermarket voucher for them to buy food over the holidays and beyond.
  • For £25 you could give a bag of Christmas treats and food for the young people to leave with  on the day; things to make the rest of the Christmas period extra special.
  • For £10 you could give some extra special toiletries to the young people attending
  • For £5 you'll be able to buy a luxury hot chocolate kit for our young care leavers to treat themselves to at home after the Christmas dinner.

If you want to contribute any other amount please do donate as we’ll be putting all other donations towards gifts for our guests. All donors will get a special mention of thanks on the BrumXmas Dinner site in recognition of their support and solidarity with young care leavers. 

Finally  if you have any other ideas for gifts - please do email us on [email protected] we would love to hear from you.
