Christmas Cheer 2021 will provide a meal and a hamper of goodies for guests who attend (six per event). You can refer yourself if you meet the eligibility criteria.

Marmalade Trust can only accept referrals for those who meet all five of the eligibility criteria below:

  • Aged over 50*
  • Living in Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire
  • Living alone and in own home 
  • Feeling lonely
