As we are a charity that is entirely funded by donations from the local community we welcome any assistance in making Christmas Day come to life. Each year we have more people attend the meal that need our help and support.
We would gratefully receive donations of either food or supermarket vouchers to allow us to purchase the fresh food during the Christmas week. Our Christmas meal is freshly cooked so items such as :
As we provide gifts for all our clients for them to take away, any items on the following list would be appreciated :
We would be very grateful for anything that you could provide to make this a very special day. We can arrange collection of items if this is more convenient for you (or you are unable to get the items to us).
Christmas can be a difficult time for our families and clients as it reminds many of friends and relations that are no longer in contact or have moved out of their lives.
Grantham Passage provides a meal on Christmas Day for our clients and families that we support and we try to make it as special as possible.
This year, again due to COVID restrictions, it is looking like we will not be able to hold the meal at our usual venue. Instead we will be delivering meals and present packs to our families on December 22nd and then on Christmas Day, we will arrange for our clients to come to us to get their takeaway meals and present packs.
To make sure that all runs smoothly and we get the help to all those that need it, we are looking for both donations and the volunteers to get it organised and sent out.
Get in touch !
This means that we will need people to help prepare the food, get everything boxed up, deliver to our families On December 22nd. We'll also need volunteers from Dec 23rd to the 25th to help us get out the meals for those clients collecting on the day.

Food is a huge part of Christmas for us all and we make sure that we pull out all the stops! Last year we delivered 207 freshly made dinners plus food and present packs on Christmas Day all around Grantham and the surrounding villages.
All of the food is prepared, cooked and delivered by our amazing team of volunteers on Christmas Day.
Main Course - Traditional roast turkey lunch with all the trimmings.
Dessert - Selection of gateaux
How can you help ?
Passage Christmas Appeal 2021
We write a christmas card for each of the clients that we will be looking after as for many, this is the only card that they will receive.
We also make sure that we get a present for each client as well which we will also deliver out to them on the day. We give out warm clothing (such as hats, scarves and gloves), toiletries, chocolates and sweets and other small gifts. All the presents are wrapped the day before and divided into male, female and children's presents.
