GROUP INFORMATION

OPTION 1 - Christmas Day Together

This is a group activity, where you will be welcomed to our home, the Kirkburton Hub, where we will have a family style Christmas Day, with a meal, games, music, crackers, a nap if you wish and we hope to make it memorable for being all together.

OPTION 2 - Christmas Day in a Box for One, delivered

This is a delivery service, where your hot meal will be delivered to your door with a smiling volunteer, with a present and cracker. We understand some people are still feeling anxious about being in groups, and this is to help them to feel part of something on the big day.

QUOTES

“…Thank you for the Christmas day in a box it was great. It made me feel that i was included in Christmas day even tho i was on my own. It was especially kind and thoughtful when the volunteer pulled the cracker with me before they left the front door. I was able to sit with my paper hat on and eat my lovely fresh cooked dinner. Well done to all involved giving up your time on Christmas day.…”  HD8 resident
