We can help with real life stories, facts and figures, spokespeople and images.

Some sample case studies that show the motivation of organisers and the impact they have:

Event organiser: It’s all down to your encouragement when I was doubting, that it is up and running!

A recent widow: I feared Christmas as the one day when nothing happens. When given information about Christmas and year round services she said ‘Its so kind of you to care’.

Event organiser: Many guests said that this was the first Christmas for years that they were not alone, loved the dinner, they made new friends and arranged to meet up in the New Year.
