Fareham Christmas Day Lunch
Who can join the Christmas Day Lunch?
The Christmas Day lunch is open to anyone in Fareham who will find themselves alone at Christmas or isolated by caring responsibilities and would enjoy a day out. This is a completely free of charge day for all who attend, although donations are welcomed to support the event for the future. Booking has opened for 2018.
What happens on the day?
Guests arrive by 12noon. A 3-course lunch with wine is served from 12:30 followed by carol singing and a raffle. After tea and mince pies, guests begin to leave, taking with them a plated tea and a wrapped gift.
