#MincePieMoments – The Great Christmas Get Together

This week, The Great Get Together are launching the second year of The Great Christmas Get Together’s #MincePieMoments campaign and they would love for you to be a part of it!

As the Jo Cox Loneliness Commission recently found, millions of us feel lonely some or all of the time. And Christmas can feel particularly difficult.

What’s on TV or in the shops, what the people around us are doing, or our memories of years gone by can make us feel left-out, isolated and painfully lonely if we don’t have anyone to celebrate with.

So that’s why The Great Get Together are asking everyone to reach out to their community this Christmas, to help tackle loneliness and bring people closer together.

Whether it’s by organising a community meal, setting an extra place at the table or knocking on a neighbours door, you could brighten up someone’s Christmas this year.

They have everything you need to take part: posters, invitations, social media graphics and a free step-by-step guide here.

You can also share tips and experience on The Great Get Together Facebook Group or follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for updates on what others are doing and more ways of taking part.

And don’t forget to share your #MincePieMoments online using the hashtag, or by emailing them at [email protected].

If you are doing work to combat loneliness, don’t forget to tell us about it using our quick survey here
