On Thursday 21st December 2017, OnSide Warrington Youth Club will be holding its annual Christmas Meal for vulnerable families at The Gateway, Warrington.
This special event aims to provide a magical Christmas experience for families who will be struggling over the festive period due to lack of income or current family circumstances. Each family will enjoy a 3 course Christmas dinner, entertainment, a family food hamper and presents for the children from Santa Claus himself!
Can you Help?
If you or your organisation would like to help us, below are things you can do to help us pull off this amazing day:
Volunteering – if you have spare time on the day whether it is the whole day or just a couple of hours to help us prepare the event etc. then you can contact Cherise Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hamper Donations– We aim to provide every family with hampers to help them through the Christmas period, could your organisation do a tin appeal? Or have a collection point for members of the public to leave items? If this is possible, Sarah Thompson is the person to contact at email@example.com
Present Donations – During the event we aim to give all young people who attend some gifts on the day to make their Christmas that little bit more special. Any donations or collections are greatly received and appreciated. Each year we struggle for gifts for teenagers therefore if you could make that your focus it would be fantastic. You can contact Jodie Lyons firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange collection of these or provide further information if needed.
Fundraising – Any donations to help us cover the costs of the event are greatly appreciated. Our Grants and Trusts Fundraiser, Jamie Patterson email@example.com can provide further information regarding this. You can also get involved by volunteering in a charity bagpack at Morrisons in Stockton Heath to raise funds for the event. Please contact Jamie if you are able to spare 2 hours in the week commencing Monday 11th December.
