We think no-one should have to spend Christmas Day alone. So we’re holding our largest ever Big Christmas Day Lunch for up to 250 local residents who would otherwise be on their own. Our guests will enjoy a festive meal & live entertainment in good company at Novotel Hammersmith. Residents, the Mayor, councillors & council staff will all be volunteering their time and pulling together to give the guests a memorable day. To make this happen, we're looking for funding for six key things: Transport - Fully accessible door to door service Catering - Lunch with all the trimmings Entertainment & gifts - live acts, gifts Qualified carers - Assisting guests on the day Event management - Experienced logistics team who will manage the day Volunteers- Administration of volunteer recruitment Hammersmith & Fulham Council have already backed the project with £4,000
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Big Christmas Day Lunch helps to combat loneliness during the festive season; it brings the community together to share a delightful day; and the opportunity to meet new people. It also makes guests aware of services that might help them throughout the year, such as befriending, home care, meals on wheels and lunch clubs. And it helps our social services team to identify and offer support to vulnerable residents they may not already be aware of.
Steps to get it done:
If you decide to back the project you will be directed to a bank mandate request. This is not a monthly direct debit, this is for a one off payment only when the full target is hit.
