How can you help ?
Christmas can be a difficult time for our clients as it reminds many of family, 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 we try to make it as special as possible.
This year, due to COVID restrictions, we cannot hold the meal at our usual venue but instead we will be delivering meals to all the people we are supporting. This means that we will need people to help prepare the food, get everything boxed up, delivered and sorted out on both the run-up and on Christmas Day.

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 :

All of the food is prepared, cooked and served by our amazing team of volunteers on Christmas Day.

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.
