I can’t begin to imagine being a parent this Christmas with little or no money for food let alone presents. So the Stevenage Community Foodbank has launched its Christmas Hamper Appeal 2016 to make Christmas a little less stressful for those families facing food poverty over the festive period. We are appealing for donation’s of the following.
Festive biscuits (Shortbread etc),
Small sweet/ chocolate selection boxes,
Birds Trifle mix,
Tinned Sponge Puddings,
Tinned Mixed Veg,
All items have to have a sell by/used by date no earlier than January 2016
Unfortunately we cannot accept donations that need refrigeration. All donations need to be non perishable or have a long shelf life and be stored at normal temperature.
If you can donate just one of these items to it would be greatly appreciated. These little thing we can do can help put a smile on Mum’s and Dad’s face and bring a little festive cheer to the children.
Our donation points are: The Oval, Bedwell, Symonds Green, St Nicholas and Springfield House Community Centres. Stevenage Borough Council Customer Service Centre in the Town Centre. Grace Community Church (Shephall), St Paul Church (Marymead) St Nicholas Church, Bunyan Baptist Church (Old Town), Holy Trinity Church (Old Town) Methodist Church (Old Town) St Peters (Roebuck) St Hilda’s (Shephall) and all the Churches in Knebworth. All the Catholic churches in Stevenage and Budgen in Great Ashby
We also have donation points at the Co-Op at The Oval, The Hyde and Knebworth branches.
