Marmalade’s social media:

We're so grateful for our amazing volunteers who dedicate their Christmas Day to spreading joy and companionship to those who would otherwise be alone. 🧡 👫This Christmas Day alone, we will use around 200 volunteers! #InternationalVolunteerDay #MarmaladeChristmas

How cute are these?! 🧡 Wheatfield Primary School have kindly hand made little tags to go on every guest's hamper at our Christmas Day events!

A huge thank you to the lovely team at @Waitrose in #WestburyPark for the mince pies! They'll be going into the hampers each of our guests receive on #ChristmasDay 🎄🤶

Did you know - having a disability means that you are more likely to be chronically lonely? In fact, 1/2 of disabled people say they are lonely. We're on a mission to break the stigma attached to loneliness by talking about it freely and openly. #LetsTalkLoneliness #IDPWD
