Manchester 2020

This year will be particularly challenging for Care Leavers, who may be alone in a bed sit or flat with little support around them. The restrictions enforced by Covid 19 mean that this year it is not possible to host a sit-down Christmas Dinner like we have in previous years so we are being as creative and innovative as we can to make the day as magical as possible. There most definitely will be Christmas decorations, dinner, cheesy Christmas tunes and plenty of presents!

Normally, we would host the dinner on Christmas Day in a University of Manchester venue with volunteer chefs cooking a traditional turkey dinner.  Clearly, this is not possible this year so the plan is for us to take Christmas to our guests.   And we need help.

Want to help out?

19th December.  We are looking for a small team of up to 25 people to help wrap our guest’s presents, put together hampers and prepare decoration packs for distribution.

Christmas Eve.  We are looking for a small team of 20 people with cars who can assist in the delivery of Christmas Eve surprise packs.

Christmas Day.  We are looking for a small team of 20 people with cars who can deliver presents, a pre-packed Christmas Dinner and a smile.
