Gift of Hope
We did it
On 4th December 2020 we successfully raised £1,641 ( + est. £331.75 Gift Aid ) with 41 supporters in 28 days

Running for 5 years, we aim to gift 300 local families with a 'Gift of Hope' this Christmas, offering a little luxury when times are hard.

We've been running the Gift of Hope project for over 5 years. 

Working with local schools, we offer a food hamper to those families who may not be able to afford the luxuries during the holidays. 

With a small team of volunteers overseeing the main logistics, the church congregation come together to pack and deliver over 250 parcels.  

With the support of local schools and businesses, we've been able to gift families with a hamper, made up of biscuits, sweets, puddings and other Christmassy treats to try and make their Christmas special.

Given the difficult times, this project feels even more important this year. With everyone being hit financially, we're looking to raise funds in as many different ways as possible.

One of the easiest ways to support us is by 'Sponsoring a Box'.  A box costs £25 and will contain the following:

*Christmas Biscuits (family size)

*Christmas Puddings (400g+)

*Festive Cake (Yule Log)

*Tub of Chocolates (family size)

*Marshmallows

*Custard

*Drinking Chocolate

*Mince Pies

*Jelly

*Biscuits for Cheese (250g+ box)

*Honey/Jam/Chocolate Spread

*Fizzy Drinks (2 litre bottles)

*Squash (1 litre bottles)

*Crisps

*Tin Ham

*Long Life Milk

*Tea/Coffee

*Pasta/Rice (500g)
