For the twelfth year running, Community Christmas Thame aims to provide a lunch on Christmas Day for the isolated and vulnerable residents of the Thame area. See the gallery for previous events.

Due to the generosity of the Thame Lodges, this year's event will be held at the Masonic Hall, in central Thame.

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 the Community Christmas Thame event on Christmas Day as either a volunteer or a guest then please call 07885 911200‬, or use our contact form, WhatsApp Contact us on WhatsApp or Messenger Contact us on Messenger.

Please see options below for how you can help.

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.
