Fareham Christmas Day Lunch
Each year for the last 10 years Fareham Christmas Day Lunch has been held on Christmas Day for anyone in Fareham who has found themselves alone at Christmas. It is usually held in the church hall of St John’s Church in Redlands Lane. Last year we had 100 guests and delivered meals to 7 people who could not attend in person.
We are unable to offer Christmas Lunch in the same way this year due to the current restrictions but, despite the difficult circumstances, we are still planning to make Christmas special for our Fareham guests. On Christmas Day this year, we will be offering a doorstep Christmas visit from our volunteers who will also deliver a Christmas hamper directly to those members of the community who find themselves alone.
How is this being funded?
This year’s alternative scheme for Christmas Day lunch is co-ordinated by Community First in Fareham. It is funded entirely by donations from the local community and is run by volunteers on the day.
How can I help?
Volunteers: We are happy to announce that we have our full complement of volunteer helpers to support our alternative scheme for Fareham Christmas Day lunch this year. You can still help the event as a donor whether you wish to donate as an individual or as a business. We welcome donations of food, small gifts, table decorations and cash. To avoid duplication leading to waste, we publish a shopping list.
Or call 01329 231899 to offer support.
