Event description

Description

Although Cambridge is considered a prosperous area, 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 warehouse you can contribute to one family in Cambridge having a happier Christmas. We will distribute the hampers to families in need.

Please obtain one nice size carrier bag and fill it with the following items:

  • 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
  • Christmas crackers

Please ensure that

  • all items fit in one bag
  • there are no perishables in the bag and that all items have a use by date of 25th December or later
  • there are no home-made items

The times available for dropping off your hamper are

Tuesday 5th December 14.30-19.30

Sunday 10th December 14.00-19.30

The warehouse is located at Unit 2 Orwell House, Cambridge, CB4 0PP.

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.Logo medium... helping local people in need
