Christmas at Refettorio Felix

Wishing our community a wonderful festive season!

We didn’t know for sure what to expect of 2021 and it’s certainly been full of ups and downs…

Nevertheless, it’s been a real highlight of the year hosting two wonderful Christmas parties for our guests which have been a long-missed opportunity for us to get together and enjoy some special festivities. With the dining hall undergoing a fabulous Christmas costume change, wafts of turkey comforting every corner, and a tree decked out with presents, this December has really been one to remember.

A massive thank you goes out to all our partners who made this all possible, along with all the volunteers giving their time this month and beyond.

Harrods – for donating decorations, presents and volunteers to set up the hall

Fidelity Insurance & Edie and team at Loveday – for sponsoring our over-60s party with donations, presents and volunteers

The Satin Dollz – for a spectacular pin-up show, adding fabulous 1940s glamour to the Centre

Andy (“Magic”) – one of our regulars who put on some mind-boggling magic tricks for our guests

Caroline Field – for photography

Julia and Hans Rausing Trust – for financial support this December

Compass Group & BaxterStorey – for food donations
