Because no-one should be alone at Christmas

Can you cook (and deliver) an extra portion this Christmas?

We are looking for some amazing people who will cook an extra portion (or two) of Christmas dinner and deliver it to someone living nearby.

With all of the restrictions in place, there were always going to be more people than ever alone at Christmas this year, whether we were in Lockdown or not.

Volunteers who offer to provide a meal will be given the details of a resident, or residents, who live nearby who they could deliver the meal to.

We'll put you in touch well in advance so that any dietry needs can be taken in to account and you can be certain you are able to meet their needs.

For those who may be alone, or couples who would normally be with family but that isn't possible this year who may want to have a meal delivered, all that is needed is the simple form below to be complete and we will be in touch.
We are more than happy to take referrals from family members, friends or neighbours and really want to stress that we are currently in extraordinary times.

Many people this year will find themselves in circumstances they would not normally be in and we would urge anyone who may face being alone or going without this year to get in touch.

Please don't hesitate to contact us using the form below or by calling 01225 809265.

Interested? If you can offer to cook an extra portion on Christmas Day, or if you would like to request a meal be delivered, please complete the form below.

About You

Please complete this section in full, whether you are offering to cook or asking for a Christmas dinner to be provided. If you are nominating someone else please provide YOUR contact details in this section.

Project Details

Thank You!
We need to check a couple of details with you now, and will be in touch later to confirm the details.

You are amazing and this simple act of kindess will make a huge difference to someone this Christmas.
Please choose one or more options
We want, as much as is possible, to fit in with your usual customs for Christmas Day and recognise that people have their Christmas Dinner at different times. When estimating a time please remember to allow time for delivery.
If there are any limitations about what you can/will cook please give details here. We will have some people who have specific allergies and/or dietary requirements so, for instance, it will be logical for us to match vegetarians who are cooking with vegetarians who are asking for a meal. Please be assured that we will not match you with anyone with a disclosed food allergy without confirming with you in advance.
Please note that we will do our best to match you with someone who can supply a meal at this time but we cannot guarantee it. We will let you know well in advance what we are able to offer.
We know that some households may be really struggling this Christmas so it may be that you need a Christmas Dinner for more than one person.
Please let us know about any Food Allergies that you have. It is important to share as much information as possible. Please note that we are unable to guarantee that there will be no cross-contamination as any meals provided will be prepared in people's homes as an extra portion of their Christmas Dinner.

Please tell us who the meal is for
