Everyone has had a lovely time leading up to Christmas. Our young adults have enjoyed lots of festive outings, celebrations and creative fun. We would like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful supporters and volunteers who have been working so hard for us and raising amazing funds throughout the year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Dame Hannahs!

Many congratulations to Matt Fowles from Dursley in Gloucestershire on winning the Austin 7 in our Car Draw! Matt who is a big classic car enthusiast already owns an Austin 12 and can't wait to head to Devon in the New Year to pick up the Austin 7. We look forward to meeting him then! And thank you to everyone who entered the draw and helped raise a wonderful amount of money for Dame Hannahs. 
Endsleigh Christmas
The Marchesi group had great fun doing the Endsleigh Christmas Scavenger Hunt and looking at the amazing Christmas displays. They found everything on the list and even had time for a nice hot chocolate. 
Christmas Concert
A huge thank you to the Levow Kesson Choir and Saltash Town Band for a really magical and festive evening at the Saltash Wesley Methodist Church. And thank you to everyone who came to support us. The evening raised a wonderful £400 for Dame Hannahs. 
Christmas at Buckfast Abbey
A group from Gilleys had a lovely time at Buckfast Abbey meeting the alpacas and going round the Christmas Fair.  
Corporate Helpers
A big thank you to the team from Octopus Energy who spent a day volunteering in our Transit Way warehouse this week. They were a great help with sorting through the mountain of donations. The volunteers are all brand ambassadors for Octopus and spend one day a month volunteering in the community. We are always grateful to corporate volunteers for giving up their time to help out at Dame Hannahs. If your company is interested in volunteering please contact Debbie or Daniel at
Christmas Creations
Our young adults have really enjoyed getting creative in the run up to Christmas. They decorated gingerbread men, designed cards and made decorations in bush craft with Team Explore. 
Lions Cheque
A big thank you to the Plymouth Tamar Lions Club for all their fundraising and their very generous donation of £200. Lions President Francis Sturman presented a cheque to our Community Engagement Officer Debbie Lumsdon. Each year the President chooses a charity for their year in the role and all proceeds from the Club’s fundraising activities go to the chosen charity. Francis has been a member of the Club for 15 years and this year he is President and chose Dame Hannahs as their charity of the year.
International Volunteers Day
Recently we marked International Volunteers Day by thanking all our wonderful volunteers. We are hugely grateful to all our volunteers who work so hard for Dame Hannahs whether it be at fundraising events or working in our shops. 
We are delighted that Dame Hannahs Make your Will Week is returning in March for the first time in three years.
Make your Will with no expensive legal fees, just a donation to Dame Hannahs. If you have children, a partner, own a property, have savings, investments or own a business, you need a Will - you may also recognise that your existing Will needs updating.
For one week only, local participating solicitors will waive their entire simple Will-writing fee in return for a donation to Dame Hannahs.
