During December, and throughout these events we will be raising money for Home For A Day.

In true Christmas spirit, we must not only enjoy ourselves and our loved ones but look to those who may not be as fortunate as us to enjoy gifts and time with their families.

This is a restaurant turned charity on the Island of Lesbos that serves home-cooked meals for refugees from the surrounding camps. It also serves as a community centre where refugees can access classes and other support all the while being treated with dignity & care.

As you eat, drink and be merry on board V11 this Christmas, you are invited to share some happiness with refugees on Lesbos. You will find a donation box on-board https://www.homeforaday.gr

Everyone taking part in V11’s 12 days of Christmas will be entered into a raffle – you may be the lucky winner of a table for two in the new year!
