The Christmas Dinner Project by Lemn Sissay MBE

14 Dec 2018 - 11:35 by michelle.foster

The Christmas Dinner Project started in Manchester in 2013 with one clear vision: that no care leaver will be alone on Christmas Day. It’s about local communities across the UK, coming together to put on dinners on Christmas Day for care leavers between 18 and 25.

Donations are welcome to the Lemn Sissay Foundation to support this vision.
