Over 200 people attended, including service users, faith representatives, volunteers, and business owners. The Christmas meal was funded by Mercure Bankfield Hotel, who ensured their staff were available to provide a fantastic service, and singer Janet Jaye performed lively musical entertainment.

We would like to thank all our volunteers and supporters, especially MyLahore, SKT Welfare, Accent Group and The Hilden Trust. A special thank you to the following for their raffle contributions: Pravin & Kishor Patel from Leeds, McDonalds, Nandos, Boots, H&M, New Look, Morrisons, Sainsburys, The Entertainer, and Five Guys”.
