2013 Christmas Day Lunch
ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL WELSEY CHRISTMAS LUNCH
Once again we had a great time on Christmas Day, feeding and entertaining 89 guests - a full house.
There were 21 enthusiastic helpers, one entertaining M.C. and 17 volunteer drivers, including the hard-working Les and Daniel Sudron and Mike Greenberg in the Happy Wanderer buses for wheelchair guests.
Our thanks must also go to Procter & Gamble for their generous annual sponsorship.
We should feel privileged that we have the wherewithal to host such an event for needy but appreciative folks and help make their Christmas Day.
Next year will be Wesley Chapel’s 30th anniversary for this event!
2012 Christmas Day Lunch
The day’s event was successful in terms of numbers and feedback from our guests.
We fed 78 guests – including 3 Wesley meals on wheels. After a substantial 3-course meal the guests were offered a general knowledge quiz between teams according to their tables, followed by a musical ‘Name that Tune’ quiz. While one table of all-round experts won both events, the kindly-donated prizes of quality sweets and chocolates were shared round the whole company.
Finally the guests were topped up with tea/coffee, mince pies and Christmas cake.
We had a wonderful team of volunteers – 20 in-house helpers and 15 drivers to pick up the 40 guests who asked for transport.
Our particular thanks go to Exchange Mutual Assurance and again to Procter & Gamble Employees Charities Fund for their generous sponsorships of the event. In addition, we received personal donations from ten of the guests in appreciation of our helping to make their day.
Already I have nearly a full team of volunteers who have asked to be included for Christmas Day this year.
Long may Wesley Chapel be in a position to run this much-appreciated event!
