The Charity was delighted to host a Christmas Day Dinner at the centre for young people who have grown up in the care system and do not have a family to spend Christmas Day with. The event was run entirely by volunteers who came together to give young care leavers a very special Christmas Day. The Charity was able to support the team with use of the centre, gifts and sharing an amazon wish list from care leavers with the community who responded with the truly fantastic Hanwell spirit that continually rises to the challenge, decorations. PA equipment and a dedicated team to ensure that a magical day was had by all.
A big thank you to the GreenW7 Pub who provided the tree and food for all of the guests.
Quotes from care leavers:-
“Thank you so much I appreciate it and you made my day. Special thanks for the books thank you so much again”
“Thank you so much. I really appreciate and love how everyone worked hard to organise this. As a care leaver I’m grateful for all your help and the amount of care you put into this! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you hopefully next year!”
