Christmas dinner for care leavers

THIS year, Wooden Spoon London is delighted to be working with our Honorary President, Tim Visser, to support The Christmas Dinner (TCD) Richmond as our Christmas campaign. TCD Richmond provides a magical Christmas Day for 50 recent care leavers, who may otherwise be spending their first Christmas Day alone and may never have had a positive Christmas experience.

Wooden Spoon London is donating 50 pairs of the charity’s distinctive stripy socks as stocking fillers. It is also supporting TCD Richmond’s campaign to fulfil their wish list for a “star” gift for all 50 guests. Each of the star gifts on the wish list was selected by guests who attended last year’s Christmas Day event. This means that the gifts should be practical and poignant for these disadvantaged young people.

Please join us in supporting this campaign, have a look at the TCD Richmond Amazon Wish List and buy a star gift to put a smile on a young person’s face this Christmas. If you are signed up to Amazon Smile and select Wooden Spoon as your charity, then Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase back to Wooden Spoon! It’s a win, win!
