An Alternative to Crackers

Every year we spend about £600 on crackers, most of which goes straight in the bin after 30 seconds of fun, contributing to a lot of waste including plastic!
So we have decided to use the money instead to donate £300 for the Northampton Hope Centre and the other £300 will be offered as John Lewis Gift Cards in a free prize draw available to all our Christmas Dinner, Christmas Day Lunch and Christmas Party Night guests.

The Northampton Hope Centre is a charity devoted to helping homeless and socially excluded people by providing for basic needs as well as activities aimed at helping to get their lives back on track.
