Description

Richmond Christmas Day Dinner WRAP-ATHON 11am to 1pm

Please join us for an hour or so between 11am and 1pm on Sunday 22nd December in Clarendon Hall, York House, Twickenham to help wrap presents for our young care leaver guests. We're aiming to fill 50 sacks and stockings with donated gifts. They include everything from fluffy socks and snuggly blankets through to toasters and smellies. There's also a 'star' or 'wow' present for every guest. Wrapping paper and sellotape have all been donated and we'll put on the Christmas tunes so it should be fun as well as fulfilling.

PLEASE BRING SCISSORS. :)

In a nutshell: Christmas wrapping for The Richmond Christmas Day Dinner, 11am-1pm at Clarendon Hall, York House, Twickenham.. The room holds about 20 wrappers so hopefully this will all work out!

Thank you.

As at 25th October, this is what we're still looking for:

Hello all, we have had a number of emails asking for what we are still looking for, so thought would be helpful to list
1) Hairdresser (styling only, barber, nail stylist, make-up artist for a two hour slot on Christmas Day (can stay longer if desired)
2) Maitre d’ for the day
3) Hosts/Helpers Christmas Day - application required, Please see the website for more info.
4) Helpers for Christmas Eve - to decorate venue, move presents, some wrapping.
5) 27th December is the less glamorous clean up day; we didn’t have enough people last year so really need people
6) This is the most difficult - We have the aim to get all guests (50) a ‘star’ present, something special that is prohibitive to them and something you would be likely to buy for your adult child. We have established what we want and are looking for a kind philanthropist who may like to help. It is not an extortionate amount but a lot to us as we are totally reliant on ALL donations of time/ presents/ food etc
Thank-you for your continued support; we couldn’t do it without you.
