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.
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.
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.Donate Now
25 December 2020, 12:30 to 14:30. Full Christmas lunch and pudding will be provided (sorry, no alcohol can be served) along with some entertainment.
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. #CCT20

“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 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.”
“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.”
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.
