DESCRIPTION

Although the Vale 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 Treat Bag and dropping it off at one of our foodbank centres you can contribute to one family in the Vale having a happier Christmas. We will distribute the bags to families in need.Please don't feel you need to buy everything on the list- we would be grateful for donations of any of the items listed below

Please obtain a long life sturdy carrier bag (ideally with a Christmas theme) 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
  • Dried fruit (e.g. apricots, figs etc)
  • Tinned ham
  • Tinned tuna/salmon
  • Sweet pickles
  • Jam
  • Mince pies
  • 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 and locations for dropping off your Treat Bag are:

Monday 4th & 11th December 2-3pm Coastlands Church, Tennyson Road Barry

Tuesday 5th & 12th December 1.30-2.30pm Cadoxton Methodist Church, Church Road Barry
