On the first day of advent, 6 GG elves came together to spread joy and festive cheer to Twickenham in the form of the offer of free Christmas lunch where all our welcome!

Every year, a local family selflessly spend the holiday cooking and serving a delicious hot lunch, with all the trimmings, to anyone who might otherwise be on their own on Christmas Day. Our mission was to deliver this merry offer through the letterboxes of homes around Twickenham to help get the word out as no-one should be lonely at Christmas.

No sleighs required here, dashing through the liquid snow & leaping like lords we made quick progress & were finished before we knew it...topping off the mission with an all important elfie...!
