Story

The Christmas Dinner, founded by poet Lemn Sissay OBE, brings communities together to provide a Christmas Day for care leavers, aged between 18 and 25. Since 2014, The Hackney Christmas Dinner celebrates with 50 young people from across East London.

For many young people leaving care, this may be their first Christmas living independently - and alone. These young people have faced many challenges in life, having grown up in the care system. We need your help to give them a day they will never forget.

We provide an abundance of gifts, a superb Christmas Dinner meal, fun, games and company on Christmas Day. Your support means that we can show every one of our guests that they are loved.

Thank you,
The Hackney Christmas Dinner team
