Get your pans hot, your chopping boards prepared and be ready to set a dining table with a difference.

Invite your neighbours to pop over for a poppadum, try a turkey tikka with your leftovers or a Boxing Day Bhuna.There is no minimum fundraising amount – the goal is to have fun and bring people together. With every penny raised, you will help build friendlier, inclusive and safer neighbourhoods whilst also supporting soldiers, veterans and their families. All funds raised will be split equally between Neighbourhood Watch and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.

You can take part in three easy steps:
