Description

What if by packing a simple bag of Christmas goodies and dropping it with us at Basildon Foodbank for distribution to families in need, you could make it a Christmas of cheer for some families? Good News - You can! Due to financial difficulties the reality is that there are many families who struggle financially and Christmas is a very difficult time. Saying Happy Christmas is easy but, together, we can do something to make it real for these families.

By putting together a Christmas Hamper and dropping it off at our distribution centre you can contribute to one family in BASILDON having a happier Christmas. We need your donations of festive food to give hampers to families in crisis

Please use one good size carrier bag and fill it with items from the list below:

  • Chocolate Christmas log or Christmas cake
  • Children’s Christmas chocolate e.g. selection box
  • After dinner/adult chocolate (no alcohol filled ones please)
  • Fancy sweet biscuits
  • Pringles or similar
  • Cheesy biscuits or similar
  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit (e.g. apricots, figs etc)
  • Tinned ham
  • Tinned tuna/salmon
  • Sweet pickles
  • Jam
  • Shower gel or shampoo, toothpaste
  • Christmas crackers

Please ensure that:

  • All items fit in one bag
  • There is no perishable item in the bag and that all items have a use by date of 25th December 2017 or later
  • There are no home-made items

Packed bags could be dropped off with us from:

Friday 1st December 2017 – Tuesday 5th December

(All bags could be handed in at the reception of the Leisure Centre when the foodbank is closed)

We are based at: Pitsea Leisure Centre (The Place), 2 Northlands Pavement, Basildon SS13 3DU (Behind Range Store)

We ask that all people who wish to donate a hamper register. This helps us to understand how many hampers we can supply to families in need and also to plan for the distribution of the hampers.
