Cyrenians Christmas Day Lunch Event

On Christmas Day, Coventry Cyrenians will once again be welcoming people to the Methodist Central Hall in Coventry for a Christmas Day meal.  Many of the people who will attend are homeless, vulnerable or are alone and isolated and would like to sit down and enjoy their Christmas meal with others. All are welcome to join us.

Christmas Lunch Event 2014

The Christmas Lunch Event has been running in Coventry for over 30 years and we believe it to be one of the best attended in the country.  The number of people attending can be between 100 and 200 with each receiving a 3 course meal.  We aim to try and give each person who attends a Christmas present but this depends on the donations we receive from the public, and we also aim to put on entertainment which is provided by our wonderful volunteers.  Our work throughout this year suggests that the need to provide this vital service on Christmas Day is needed as much now as it has been in the past.  




Can you help support the Christmas Lunch Event?

We are appealing for help and hope you may be able to support us in providing this Christmas meal to the homeless, vulnerable and isolated people in Coventry and Warwickshire.  For some of the people who attend, this will be their only opportunity for a hot meal on Christmas Day.

If you feel able to support us you can do so in many different ways.  We like to give a small present to each person we welcome to our meal, and in recent years this has included ‘socks and chocs’ so if you are able to donate either socks or a bar of chocolate we would be very grateful.  We are always in need of other Christmas items such as mince pies as well as everyday items like tea, coffee and sugar, but we are really grateful for any donation you feel you would like to make. 

If you would like to make a monetary donation you can do this in a number of ways: send a cheque made payable to Coventry Cyrenians Ltd, Oakwood House, Cheylesmore, Coventry CV1 2HL (this is next door to the Jobcentre Plus building just off St Patricks Rd in the city centre); if you wish to make a cash donation you can do this by calling in at Oakwood House which is open 9.00-12.30 and 13.30-17.00 Monday – Friday.  Alternatively, you can give online www.justgiving.com/coventrycyrenians.

Rather than making a cash donation you may prefer to donate by purchasing our Christmas Cards, costing £2.99 for 10.  Please telephone 02476 527 887 to find out how to do this.
