Chef for Christmas Day (Fareham)

If you have experience of cooking for 100+ and are free on 25th December 2019 we'd love to hear from you.

Fareham Christmas Day Lunch caters for people in Fareham who would otherwise spend the day alone. 

Now in our 10th year, this popular event welcomes at least 100 guests and volunteers for a 3-course freshly cooked traditional festive dinner, entertainment and gifts to take home. 

Thanks to the generosity of local individuals and businesses, the lunch has gone from strength to strength.

As chef for the day, you will be part of a really magical event in the local calendar.

We can promise you support leading up to the event, as many elves as you need on the day and a friendly team atmosphere.

Please get in touch for a no-obligation chat with more information.
