The community gathering, hosted by Touch Network, will include a bring-and-share banquet, live music by the Solent Community Choir, an auction featuring various prizes, and local gift stalls,

“St Deny’s church hall will be transformed into a sparkling wintery wonderland for the evening,”, say organisers. It will also feature a display of inspiring personal letters telling people’s own stories of resilience.

If you have a skill or an item you’d consider donating as part of the auction, the Touch team would love to hear from you. Last year's prizes included tickets for a family day out, a pair of hand-knitted gloves, a delicious cheesecake and a belly-dancing lesson! Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
