Take part in our ‘Family’ Dinner campaign

From developing young children’s language skills, to improved mental health for all the family, to better bonding; there are many wonderful reasons for eating dinner together as a family.

Home-Start Oldham, Stockport & Tameside are launching a ‘Family’ dinner campaign for March 2020.

We’d love you to get involved and cook for your family, your friends, your neighbours; anybody whom you enjoy spending time with!

How it works

  • Host a dinner in your own home/ your garden (or a venue of choice).
  • Prepare/ cook and invite your favourite people.
  • Charge each person a fee for the meal which will be donated back to HOST.

You could get creative with ideas of how to fundraise on the night such as hosting a raffle, having a collection tin for loose change or even having a swear jar!

All funds raised will go towards helping local families.

Get in touch:
Call: 0161 344 0669
