Making Christmas Special

For many people Christmas is a time spent with family and friends, but for some it can be a lonely time, particularly Christmas Day.

In It's third year, Making Christmas special is being organised by Social Connections North East CIC working with community and voluntary organisations, churches and the business community to bring people together to make Christmas extra special.

There was a great response to the appeal last year, which meant over 160 people enjoyed Christmas celebrations across North Tyneside.

This year plans are underway to make Christmas even more special and it would be great to have more people involved.

This year there will be Christmas Day celebrations at a number of venues to be confirmed

If you or someone you know would like to come along and have Christmas lunch with entertainment please contact Care and Connect on 0191 643 7474.

The event is free and booking is essential as places for this year are filling up.

There are lots of other ways you could join in too, you can:-

  • Donate a present

  • Sponsor a Christmas lunch for someone. (Each meal is £10 and you can do this on line: Account name: Make Christmas Special, Sort Code: 23-75-24, Account number: 03689060)

  • Transport someone to and from a Christmas Day celebration

  • Prepare and serve Christmas meals

  • Tell us if someone you know would like to join in our Christmas Day celebrations
