Christmas is finally upon us!
As much as I love this time of year, it’s important to remember those of us that are less fortunate. Important all year round, but naturally heightened at this time of giving and receiving, our charitable spirits must take centre stage during these cold months. Which is exactly what I’d like to tell you about today!
Micheal Cullen, general manager, and his wonderful team are hosting their annual event at Chichester Brasserie Blanc from 6.30pm on Sunday the 6th of December. Every year they host a fabulous dinner service with the local children in need in mind – and what could be a better cause.
In collaboration with Wave 105, they’re opening their doors for you to have a three course meal at just £20 a head, including a glass of house wine and a coffee. You heard me – a three course meal, a glass of wine, and a coffee for just £20. The deal speaks for itself.
Along with your usual meal at a standard that can only be described as excellence (review coming up in January!), you get to sit in this gorgeous rustic Christmas enthused restaurant and join in with a festive quiz too. With prizes to be won such as champagnes and wines, it’s bound to be a jolly night pouring love into your community this Christmas.
Head along for a date night, or for a work festive do, or perhaps a family get together. Uni students – it’s your last weekend before most head home, what a perfect way to get ready for the holidays with your housemates!
All the team ask, is that you bring along any present at all suitable for any age between 0-16years. It can be a book, or a baby grow, or an action man, or monopoly or ANYTHING AT ALL. Walk into ANY shop and pick up the first thing on offer, or pick up a couple – or bring that kids toy you forgot to give your cousin last year! Anything!
Please help Michael and his team give the deserving children in our community something to brighten their lives on Christmas day. I ask you to take a moment and think about how you would feel if you didn’t receive anything at all on Christmas day. If, as a child, you went back to school in January and listened in silence to the excited chatter about presents, thinking you’d have been happy with just one tiny gift. Or, if you’re a parent, how awful you would feel if you couldn’t afford to give your children anything this year.
You have a chance to change someone’s Christmas Day. And the great news is, there really is no excuse! If you’re busy on Sunday, don’t fear – Michael has told me he will welcome any gifts at any other time previous to the evening. Even if you can’t attend, you can still contribute!
Luckily for you, there’s still a few spaces – but they’re filling up fast so get booking asap! You can email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call directly 01243534200. Last year they collected a fantastic 150 gifts, let’s help them make this year even bigger!
Ps. The team asks that you bring your gifts unwrapped, to make it easier to sort gifts into the suitable age groups. Thank you!
