It's that time of year again!
Last year, our MyHoHoHo volunteers delivered over 250 meals to isolated older people who would have otherwise gone without a festive home cooked meal on Christmas Day.
This year, not only are we running our MyHoHoHo project again but we have also launched our 12 Days of Christmas Fundraising Challenge alongside a whole host of other ways that you can support us to make Winter 2021 the best one yet for the community of Lambeth.
If you would like to donate to us now - you can donate online at www.justgiving.com/campaign/AUKLChristmas2021 or text 2021CHRISTMAS to 70085 to donate £12, which will buy someone a Christmas gift. This costs £12 plus one standard network rate message. If you would like to donate by cheque, please call 0333 360 3700.
By supporting our campaign, you will help us tackle loneliness in Lambeth this Christmas. Please take a look below at our fundraising and volunteering opportunities available this Christmas.
Do you love to dance? Come along to our 12 Hour Dance-athon on 7th December at Brixton Brewery from 10am - 10pm!
To kick off our 12 Days of Christmas Challenge, you can join us for as little or as long as you'd like and there will always be someone dancing with you to the sound of 4 live DJs!
What a better way to raise money for your community than having a dance and enjoying some drinks and snacks to boot!

We are challenging YOU to come up with your very own fundraising challenge this Christmas.
All it has to do is involve the number 12!
Some ideas we have are listed below:
- Run 12 miles
- Create 12 drawings/paintings and auction them off
- Cycle 10 km every day for 12 days
- Give something up for 12 days
- Complete a 12 hour knitathon with your friends
- Try a different challenge or sport every day for 12 days
- Do a 12 day walk, run or cycle relay with friends, with one of you completing a set amount of miles each day
- Bake 12 cakes and host a coffee morning with friends
- Run, walk or cycle 12 laps of your local park
Decide on a challenge, let us know what it is at firstname.lastname@example.org, and get fundraising!
Every penny raised will help us deliver a home cooked Christmas meal, gift, hand-written card and cracker to hundreds of older people in Lambeth who are spending Christmas Day alone.
Help fight the battle of loneliness this holiday season!
Sign up to be a volunteer and give back to the community this Christmas! Make an extra portion of food to give someone the gift of a homecooked holiday meal.
You will be matched with an isolated person (or people) in your area and we will deliver you an extra plate (for each person you cook for).
Bring a bit of Christmas joy to someone living by themselves by delivering them a homecooked meal on Christmas day!
