Who can join the Christmas Day Lunch? 

The Christmas Day lunch is open to anyone in Fareham who will find themselves alone at Christmas or isolated by caring responsibilities and would enjoy a day out.  This is a completely free of charge day for all who attend, although donations are welcomed to support the event for the future.  Booking has now closed for 2017.  If you have booked but cannot come on the day, please ask us about delivering a meal to you at home.

What happens on the day? 

Guests arrive by 12noon.  A 3-course lunch with wine is served from 12:30 followed by carol singing and a raffle.  After tea and mince pies, guests begin to leave, taking with them a plated tea and a wrapped gift. 

Where is it held? 

Once again this year there are lunches at two venues on Christmas Day

St John’s Church, 1A Upper St Michael’s Grove, Fareham PO14 1DN, and

North West Fareham Community Centre, Henry Cort Drive, Fareham

How do I get there? 

If you cannot get there yourself, we can organise free door to door transport to get you there on time and safely home again. 

How do I book?

Booking has closed for 2017.  If you have booked but cannot come on the day, please ask us about delivering a meal to you at home.

How is this being funded?

The Christmas Day lunch is supported and co-ordinated by Christians Together, Community Action Fareham and Fareham Good Neighbours.  It is funded entirely from donations from the local community and is run by volunteers on the day. 

How can I help?

Volunteers: Thanks to a fantastic response, we are no longer recruiting for volunteer helpers on Christmas Day 2017. 

Donors: We welcome donations of food, small gifts, decorations and cash.  To avoid duplication leading to waste, we  publish a shopping list HERE.  Or call 01329 231899 to offer support.  You can make a commission-free cash donation through our My Donate page.
