Welcoming anyone who would like company on Christmas Day
Frome's Big Christmas Get-Together
ABOUT THE EVENT /
For over nine years Frome has been running a traditional Christmas lunch for about 120 guests from our community on Christmas Day. With the help of many amazing local businesses and a passionate group of volunteers we have been able to support anyone in our town who would like a nice meal and some company.
We all know that Christmas can be a hard time for some people both young and old, for a whole host of reasons. This year it will be especially difficult for many people. Our Christmas Day lunch is usually a real celebration, an opportunity for both participants and volunteers to be part of a very lively and special day. We can't run our event in person but the need for us to reach out to those in our community who are isolated has never been so important. We are working with Active and In Touch and Fair Frome to deliver hampers to those on their own in person on the day.
WHAT WE WOULD LOVE SOME HELP WITH
This year will be very different in how we normally do it and we need an amazing organising team to pull this off.
We would like to do about 120 hampers with a Christmas diner, pudding, gift, and crackers in it. If you would like to work with us to provide any of those things or have any ideas or recommendations of who may like to be involved, we are all ears
We will need about 20 volunteers to help pack up hampers on Christmas Eve, and a venue to safely do it in.
On Christmas Day we need about 120 volunteers to deliver hampers to participants and if it allowed to stop for a while and provide some company. It would be really great if you are DBS checked
If you are a community organisation and you know someone who would like company and a lunch on Christmas Day please get in touch
