MHM 3rd Annual Boxing Day Lunch

MHM are absolutely delighted to announce that due to support from Hay & Kilner solicitors, and the great success of the last 2 years events, that we will once again be hosting a Boxing Day lunch for the homeless, lonely and vulnerable at the Oasis Café in Newcastle on Saturday 26th December 2015.

For most, the festive season is a time to celebrate with family and friends but for others it can be a difficult and lonely time of year.

Last year we were able to serve delicious three course hot meals and hand out goody bags to more than 90 people who otherwise would have spent their Christmas alone. Our aim is to help even more individuals to have a memorable Christmas in 2015.

If you or somebody you know are homeless, lonely or vulnerable and would benefit from some company and a hot meal, please contact Tony Duffy or Paul Gorringe at the Oasis Café. Tickets are available from Thursday 10th December by telephone on 0191 273 1659, or call in to the Oasis Café up until Christmas Eve.

Tickets must be collected from, Oasis Cafe, Cruddas Park Shopping Centre, Westmorland Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 7RW.

The event is ticket only and the available times are 11:30am and 13:30pm. Tickets need to be collected from the Oasis Café. Only a name is required to reserve a space at one of the events.
