The Christmas Dinner is a pop up organisation of twelve professionals in the North West of England with over an hundred years experience of working with young people. We have come together to provide a Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day in Manchester for approximately forty care leavers between the ages of sixteen to twenty five years. They will not be alone on that day.
Many care leavers are alone in flats, B&B’s and hostels on Christmas day. Many are sofa surfing and indeed living on the streets on their own at Christmas. Christmas day becomes a reminder of everything they never had – a dreaded day. The Christmas Dinner team will put on a scrumptious meal and a day to remember at a secret location in Manchester on Christmas Day. The diners will have a laugh on that day.
I will be there. I will be one of the volunteers. I know what Christmas for care leavers is like because I was one of them. I’m a care leaver. One young man took his own life last year and it is because of him that this event is happening. We think we can do something. We are looking for companies and individuals to support this wonderful day. And here’s how.
Manchester: The key areas as follows: food, volunteers decorations, transport and cooks. The overall cost and target is £5000. You can find out more and make your bid by writing directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you – promise. We are a pop up organisation of trusted professional individuals. We’ve come together for one purpose – to make this happen. There will be a crowd funding page set up in seven days.
