We are excited to announce the launch of our new crowdfunding campaign, raising money for our #LetsEatTogether community meals. We believe no-one should have to be alone at Christmas. This Christmas Day, anyone who would otherwise be alone is invited for a free Christmas dinner, complete with music, presents, and festive fun!
Our previous community meals have been great successes, with large turnouts stretching our resources to their limits. We want to continue helping our community on an ever-greater scale. To do this, we need your support.
For every one pound we raise in donations, British Airways will match it, allowing us to serve more free meals than ever before! Any amount you can spare will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
