Why not help spread a little festive cheer by donating to our Christmas hamper campaign?
Christmas can be the loneliest time of the year for many. The knowledge that someone has thought about them this Christmas, that they are not alone, can lift the spirits – as can the child-like experience of opening up a hamper to see what unexpected treats lie inside.
The people we send hampers too are often elderly and isolated. Many are widowed or missing loved ones. Some won’t get any other gifts this Christmas. Giving them a hamper shows someone’s thinking of them.
Containing store cupboard essentials and a few festive treats, we know from the thank you letters we receive how much they are appreciated.
One lady wrote to us: “Thank you for the magnificent hamper. We are very grateful – the past year has been difficult but your acts of kindness have really lifted our spirits.”
Each hamper costs £50 for a single person or £85 for a couple. Last year, our hamper appeal raised a fantastic £22,500 towards the costs – in the region of £40-£50,000.
You would can make a donation in support of the Christmas hamper appeal in various ways:
