Christmas meals and secret Santas

Thank you to every one who helped with the Christmas meals and who donated secret Santa presents. We have had some lovely thanks like the following:

"I wanted to say thank you so much for not only arranging Christmas meals but especially for the surprising addition of a bag of presents!!! It was lovely to receive such a kind, thoughtful gesture and made the day extra special, so please pass on my sincere thanks to all concerned."

"It arrived in two carrier bags and contained everything we would want. Apart from the delicious meal itself there was wine, crackers, chocolates and a thoughtful gift.

The whole thing was just amazing, it allowed us to have a relaxed morning with no hard work in the kitchen, couldn’t have been better. Thank you all."

We have received so may generous donations to help with the cost of providing the meals. Many times when we asked if a person would like a Christmas meal they said yes, some said no, but invariably they said they would like to donate money to buy a meal for another person.

We owe a special thank you to the staff at the Chequers Inn and the White Lion who in these difficult times donated their Autumn tips. Thanks also to the chef at Long Island who donated £1 for every meal sold one evening and donated hot chocolate drinks to the carol singers.

We have an amazing community!
