The dust has now well and truly settled on our Ellesmere Port Christmas Dinner for Care Leavers 2018.
On behalf of the steering group behind the event and the 21 wonderful young care leavers who attended on the day, we want to say the biggest thank you to you all for your generosity, kindness and care leading up to the event.
It was a true success with many of the young people sharing it was their ‘best Christmas ever’. They are currently organising a thank you presentation and event so they can share what it meant to them with the people who made it possible.
Check out the video above. It really captures the spirit and the essence of the day.
We also got a nice bit of press coverage too in the Chester Standard.
Finally, this Facebook post shows just how many people got behind the event and helped make it happen. A real team effort.
This has been an incredibly special project that has connected many different people together, a really great example of a local community rallying to do something brilliant.
This year we managed to exceed our fundraising target so we will be using this money to ensure this year's Ellesmere Port Christmas Dinner is an even greater success.
