Christmas Project

Whilst the Christmas period brings joy to many, for others it can be a time of loneliness, hardship and depression, bringing with it an increased risk of suicide. At Christmas, when homeless and vulnerable people need comfort and support more than at any other time, a lack of friends and family with whom to spend the festive period only exaggerates the feeling of isolation.

The project provides:

  • A warm, safe and welcoming environment
  • Entertainment
  • Cooked food
  • Clothing & toiletries
  • Medical care & advice

 

This year, our Christmas project will be held at;

Limelight Community Centre, 1 St Brides Way, Stretford, M16 9NW.

We will be open the following hours;

  • Monday 23rd December; Prep shift 10am-2.30pm, Open to clients from 2-8pm
  • Tuesday 24th December; 7am-8pm

Christmas Volunteer form

Please note, shifts will be removed from the form once they are full, and the application form will be taken down completely once we have filled each shift. We advise you to get your application in early for the best chance of getting the shifts you require, and you will be allocated all the shifts you select unless you hear otherwise. We cannot accept new volunteers who do not receive at least one reference, so we recommend confirming with your referee’s before you add their contact details to the form. All new volunteers must also attend one training day. We regret to inform you, unless you have volunteered for a previous Christmas project, we will not allow on shift any volunteers who have not attended a training day.
