Last year, for the first time, we ran a campaign to raise money to make and deliver Hampers to those who needed a little help at Christmas. The response was overwhelming. With your help we were able to raise over £6000, and working with our friends at St Mary’s Church, delivered over 120 hampers to families in the local area.
But if we thought last year was tough, this year may be even harder. Covid has not gone away. People are still losing loved ones. And now many families are contending with lost jobs, furlough support removed, mounting heating bills, and rising prices.
So this year we're back! And we need your help to raise enough money to help even more families in our local community.
As with last year, we will work with local schools, charities and social services to identify those families most in need. Every family on our list will receive a hamper with enough food for a family of four, delivered to their door on the 23rd December.
Our hampers are intended to ensure that every family that receives one has all the necessary ingredients to enjoy a traditional family Christmas: they will contain a Turkey, and all the trimmings, all fresh and locally sourced; they will contain cheese, biscuits and chutney; Christmas pudding and a Yule log; and enough sweets and chocolates that everyone will be happy!
We don't want anyone in Bridport to have to miss out on what most of us take for granted, and with your help, they won't have to.
Each hamper costs £40, but anything you can give will be gratefully received, and efficiently spent so that we can help as many families as possible. Please note that the more money we raise, the more we can spend on families who need it. So please give as generously as you are able!
Thank you for your time, and for your continued support - if you have any questions, or wish to help, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected]
