Festive Christmas Dinner

During the Christmas period, our Day Centre is gearing up for a special event to bring some festive cheer to our clients. On December 14, we will be hosting a Christmas dinner for the homeless individuals we serve. The Day Centre transforms into a welcoming space adorned with holiday decorations, where the spirit of generosity and kindness is focal.

...more than providing just practical services; it’s about fostering a sense of community and belonging.

This event serves as a beacon of hope during the holiday season, providing a warm and welcoming environment for those who may be feeling isolated or alone. Volunteers play a crucial role in making this event a success, assisting our staff in managing the larger crowd, helping prepare and serve the special Christmas meal, and sourcing and distributing gifts to our clients, aiming to alleviate the feeling of loneliness that can be particularly acute during this time. 

Volunteer support not only ensures the logistical smoothness of the day but also creates an atmosphere of camaraderie and shared interests, making it a memorable and joyful occasion for all. This collaborative effort embodies the spirit of the season and highlights our commitment to providing more than just practical services; it’s about fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Additional winter support for our clients

Recognising the challenges our homeless clients face, we aim to provide essential winter clothing such as jackets, scarves, gloves, and hats to ensure they stay warm during the cold weather.

We also extend our support by sharing information about available shelters and temporary accommodations during the Christmas period. It is our collaborations with local organisations and services that helps to ensure that our clients not only receive immediate relief but also access to resources that can pave the way for positive change in their lives. We hope to counteract the feelings of isolation that can intensify during the holiday season, providing them with a ray of hope for a better future.
