Story of Christmas Cheer

Marmalade Christmas Cheer Last year, Marmalade Trust supported 165 of the most isolated people across Bristol, South Glos. and North Somerset on Christmas Day. We would love to be able to offer Christmas Day events again this year - we don’t want anyone to spend the day alone if they don’t want to. However, the income has been slow to secure, leaving us with a major funding crisis. We need to raise money to ensure we can bring joy and companionship to people who would otherwise be alone on Christmas Day. The money raised will not only got towards transport and a free 3 course Christmas meal in a local pub or restaurant, but support to build confidence and help people find more local connections and friends. It is a tough climate to be a small charity, and we are so grateful for all the support you have given us in the past. But, we have never needed it more than now. This is not a marketing ploy, it is a reality. “I spent 18 years alone on Christmas Day. A roast chicken packet meal for one. Until last year, when Marmalade Trust took me to a local pub on Christmas Day. I laughed and felt like I had family for the first time in years.” Margaret, 87 If you'd like more information about our Christmas Day events →
