It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

With Christmas only around the corner our Steering Groups are finalising all of the details for the big day. The attention to detail is important. They're creating all of the special touches, the decorations, the pamper stations, the activities and games, they're picking the music and the films, stockings are being filled and presents are being wrapped.

Our volunteers are amazing! We're so proud of the time, effort and devotion that they give to making this day as special as possible. From our Steering groups, to our present wrappers, our chefs, our hosts, pipers and Santas... 

A huge thank you to them all. And to all of you, to everyone who has pledged. Also to everyone who buys a present for a guest, everyone who shares our posts and our crowdfunder link. Thank you.

Did you see Lemn on Songs of Praise earlier? It was a lovely snapshot of the magical memories that our Christmas Dinners create. If you didn't catch it you can see it on iPlayer.
