Cocoon Christmas Day

Cocoon Christmas Day (formerly Richmond Christmas Day Dinner) is an annual event for care leavers aged 18+ to celebrate their resilience and create positive memories. Members of the community get together to create a unique Christmas Day experience.  The aim of the event is very simple: that no young adult care leaver should feel alone on Christmas Day.

We started as group of volunteers lead by Sian Thomas, a local nurse at the time, who founded the Richmond Christmas Day Dinner in 2017. With the help of an incredible community we have been able to put on a magical Christmas Day event every year since for up to 60 care leavers and their children. Even during the pandemic when we delivered Christmas to their doors.
