About Community Christmas Thame.

For the seventh 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.

Yet again this year's event will be held at the Masonic Hall, in central Thame.

We must also say a massive thanks to Waitrose and Selcom 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.

Thank you, we have all
the volunteers we need
for this year's event


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.


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

Our Team

Kathy Thomas

“Having volunteered for a number of years with Christmas Crisis in London, Kathy was looking for something a little closer to home. Having found nothing similar in the area, with the aid of CommunityChristmas.org and her family, CCThame launched the first event in 2011.”

Kerry Knight

“Kerry and her twin daughters, Rachael and Heather have been supporting Community Christmas Thame since the beginning. Kerry now arranges all the volunteers so we collect guests or deliver meals to everyone.”

The Volunteers

“What can we say, without the volunteers, we would not have an event. All the people who have given up their time over the festive period over the years or made a donation to help others, a massive thank you.”

Our 2019 Sponsors

Along with all the volunteers, those whom have donated gifts, our sponsors help us cover the costs of hosting such an event. We are forever grateful for their generosity and support.
