Frome's Big Christmas Get-together


On Christmas day, more than 60 volunteers threw a Christmas Day party in Frome for those people who may otherwise have missed out on celebrating in a traditional way.

This amazing event was organised by Charlie Thomas, our friend from Frome's St. Catherines Market, and we were proud to help out by making soup for it.

Ian, our head chef, received a really nice thank you letter from Charlie last week, which I'd thought i'd share you. In doing so, I hope I can highlight how well this event was run and catch the eye of a few other local volunteers or producers who might like to get involved next year!

Dear Ian,

Thank you so much for your support of the Frome Big Christmas Get-together. With your help, we were able to feed over 80 people on Christmas Day, who otherwise would have spent the day alone. We had catered for 100 people, so there was some food left over, however on Boxing Day all leftover food was donated to YMCA on Bath Street. So you will be glad to hear that the project generated no wastage at all.

Prior to the event, we produced a poster for each of our sponsors and covered a wall with them, so that everyone taking part could see who had made the event happen. This will hopefully be visible on the film that Froe TV are currently editing, and will be available on www.frome.tv soon. I have also written a letter to the Somerset Standard, which will be printed in next weeks newspaper, with a full list of all our sponsors.

Without the generosity of the local businesspeople of Frome and surrounding areas, this event could not have happened.

I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Charlie Thomas
