Christmas Lunch in the Park

Christmas Gifts
A favourite aspect of Christmas Lunch in the Park is our gift giving. Where smiles, joy and surprise emerge on the faces of both the young and old guests we have the pleasure of being able to serve. As we try to personalise our gifts by breaking them up into age groups, it is really important we manage our donations and make sure every age group attending the event will be given an appropriate gift. Therefore here are the current levels of our Christmas gifts for this year.

If you would like to send items or donate towards our gift needs, please email - we can then provide you with our Christmas Gift list and instructions on where to send your donations.
