Christmas Day

Each year on Christmas Day, we throw open our doors and host a Christmas meal for older and disabled people in the area, who would otherwise be spending Christmas Day alone.

Guests arrive through the generosity of volunteer drivers and enjoy a hot Christmas meal, a drink or two, some fantastic entertainment, gifts, and a visit from Santa!

The day is entirely volunteer-led. For many volunteers, helping out here has become as much of a tradition in their families as stockings, carols and cold turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day.

We have been holding this Christmas Day event for over 40 years. We rely on donations to make this wonderful event happen each year; for every guest attending we need to fundraise £20. We hope you agree that this is a great and worthwhile cause, and if you are able to make a donation to support our Christmas Day project, then please do.

There is an FAQ document which should answer any queries you may have about Christmas Day available to download below.

We've received a huge amount of interest from people wanting to volunteer on the day: thank you to everyone who has been in touch. You can still help us by cooking turkeys (provided by us) in their ovens at home on Christmas morning then delivering them to Jacksons Lane for the meal. If you're interested in being a cook for us, please email [email protected].

You can also help support Christmas Day by making a donation of your choice.
