From Santa Walks to Christmas Movie Nights to a Xmas Grotto, it’s all happening at OKFP Community Hub this month.
With the cost of living crisis affecting more and more households we’re pushing out all the Christmas bells and whistles to bring some festive cheer to the area.
Throughout December the Hub will be transformed into Santa’s Grotto and the big man himself will be here Monday to Friday from 3pm —6pm.
Under-10s can come along, have a chat and get their photo taken with Santa.
This is a free event but slots need to be booked via Eventbrite.
Then on Saturday December 17 we’re heading to Dalmuir for our Family Santa Walk.
Grab your Santa hat and meet us for a 12 noon start as we walk from Dalmuir Square along the Saltings to the Hub for an Xmas Market.
This is a free event but please reserve your spot on Eventbrite
The Christmas countdown continues with our ‘Love Actually’ Christmas Movie Night from 7pm on December 23.
BYOB and tuck into our tasty Christmas buffet for just £5 pp.
And finally on Christmas Eve, Santa and his little helpers will be out and about delivering gifts to under 10s nominated for a Christmas visit
If you would like Santa to surprise your little one on Christmas Eve please get in touch.
We’re looking for volunteer drivers to help Santa and the elves, so please contact us if you can spare a couple of hours on Christmas Eve.
The Chatty Café and Community Pantry will be open as normal from 12noon – 4pm up to December 23.
We’ll be serving up some festive delights so pop in for a bit of heat, a blether and mince pie.
From December 23 – January 3 our staff and volunteers are taking a well-deserved break, but emergency food parcels will be available 12 – 1pm every week day apart from Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
The past year has seen us supporting more people than at the height of the pandemic.
In January we helped 61 households, by September we were providing emergency food parcels to over 500 households every month!
We expect this demand to continue to increase.
You can help our community with donations of food, toiletries, and cleaning items. Or why not organise a festive fundraiser for OKFP?
