Christmas is all about spreading kindness and serving joy. Earlier this week, we invited over 80 individuals and families in Kent for an annual Porchlight Christmas lunch, giving a free meal to those in need. The festive period is always hard for many people up and down the country, heightening feelings of loneliness. And so fun, festive events like this make a real difference. Hosted in the decadent Pavilion at The Spitfire Ground, our chefs prepared a traditional two-course lunch and volunteers from both Sodexo & Kent Cricket delivered a memorable afternoon for people the charity supports.
“What a great event! Our staff, supporters, and the people we support were all well and truly spoiled. We have received some lovely messages from everyone that came along to the day. Thanks to everyone at Sodexo for giving up their time and making us all feel festive and so welcome. There were people I was sitting with who were going to spend Christmas Day alone so yesterday was a huge deal for them. I left feeling really uplifted and festive. We’re really excited to be partnering with you and to have your support for homeless and vulnerable people. Here’s to great 2023! “ (Porchlight)
