#32 Care leavers

Request: Christmas Dinner

Today, we’d like to help dozens of extraordinary young care leavers, who have no one to spend Christmas with. They’ve all spent time in care, and now they are adults, they often find themselves alone over the festive period.

Every year, a group of amazing volunteers in Richmond hold a special Christmas Day Dinner, laying on food, gifts and - most importantly - company and kindness for up to 70 young people. They aim to make it as special as they can and we are very happy to be supporting the event. With funds raised by Gala Bingo, we will help to make sure they all have a Christmas Day to remember.
