Only 5 days until the big day...

Our steering groups started planning in September, they've been meeting every fortnight since then, working hard to make sure that all the plans are in place for our guests to have a fabulous Christmas day. 

They have organised venues, chefs, food, hosts, presents, decorations, there are helpers to wrap presents, the taxis are booked and our guests are getting excited... It's almost here. I can almost hear the jingle of sleigh bells!

You have all helped to make this a reality. Thank you so much. This year has been phenomenal, 17 Christmas Dinners!!! But next year is looking like it's going to be even bigger... We've already had approaches from 8 other towns/cities about organising a Christmas Dinner. That's why we need to ensure that we hit our target so that we're able to support all of the dinners next year. 

Thank you for your support so far. You have been incredible. We've got this far without any corporate sponsorship or donations which just shows the amazing kindness of our communities. But some corporate donations would be lovely. If you can share our story with any companies you know, your networks, friends and family we'd be delighted. We really need to hit our target.

Thank you.
