"The Christmas Dinner" in Manchester

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  thechristmasdinner2013@gmail.com 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. Thankyou for your responses. Please Share this post.
