Are you interested in volunteering as a host at the Manchester Christmas dinner?
The Christmas Dinner is a pop up organisation founded by the poet Lemn Sissay and a group of professionals who, between them, have over a hundred years experience of working with young people. Their aim is to provide a Christmas Day Dinner for care leavers aged between 16 and 25 on Christmas Day. Many care leavers are sitting in flats, B and B’s, hostels, away from family or are sofa surfing or living on the streets on their own at Christmas.
"Christmas is a reminder of everything they never had. It's often a dreaded day. Not now. We will put on a scrumptious Christmas meal and create a magical day to remember at a secret location in Manchester."
More hosts are needed to make the day a success - see the Manchester Christmas Dinner Facebook Group if you'd like to help...
