Community Christmas Thame 2019

For the eighth year running, Community Christmas Thame aims to provide a lunch on Christmas Day for the isolated and vulnerable elderly of the Thame area. See the gallery for last years event.

Previously, the events have been hosted in the The Birdcage pub, High Street, Thame. Built around 1300 it has fortunately retained its structural character and many of the elm beams, once covered in ancient plaster, have been exposed creating the historical atmosphere inside and out.

Due to increasing demand, we have had to find a larger location and are extremely pleased to announce that we have found another central location will to support us. This year’s event will be held at the Masonic Hall, Thame.

We must also say a massive thanks to Sainsbury, Waitrose and Thame Welfare Trust for supporting us these last couple of years, without them, we would not have been able to provide this event.

On Christmas Eve we will be preparing the food and decorating the dining area. Volunteers collect our guests on Christmas morning and once at the Masonic Hall we all enjoy some entertainment and a traditional, freshly cooked lunch.

If you would like to join us at Thame as either a volunteer or a guest then please call our phone number (01844 217413) or contact Kathy who will be your hostess.

Please see options below for how you can help or watch our videos or read our news items to learn more.

Giving is Virtue.

There are lots of ways to help. If you are unsure or would like to discuss these options, please use the contact form and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.

Become a volunteer

There are plenty of ways to help. Collecting guests, sitting with them for company, delivering meals to those whom can’t attend, cooking, cleaning, washing up, signing etc. Please contact us to discuss options and availability during the day. As the event has grown year each year, we anticipate we’ll need 50+ volunteers during the day. If you can spare even an hour, you can make such a difference to people’s lives.

Gifts

Not only do we provide the lunch and entertainment for our guests, but we also give them a small present. This year we have set up a central collection point within Thame Town Hall so donations can be dropped off conveniently. All we ask if that the gift is unwrapped and suitable for both sexes. Ideally we are looking for: After Eights, Chocolate Oranges, Matchmakers, Shortbread Biscuits and Jam or Marmalade.

Donate

We welcome donations to allow us to cover the costs of running the Christmas event or support others throughout the year. Thank you.

The Meal

25 December 2019, 12:30 to 14:30. Full Christmas lunch and pudding will be provided (sorry, no alcohol can be served) along with some entertainment.

Spread the word

Whether using social media or good old fashion ‘word of mouth’, letting people know about the event will hopefully prevent anyone being alone this Christmas. Please tell others. #CCT19
