Foodbank Festive Plea

Hi everyone. We have received the plea below from our friends at Andover Foodbank. If you wish to help with a donation for their festive hampers, please leave your donations in front of the Nave Alter in the church by the end of Sunday, so we can take them to the Foodbank on your behalf on Monday. Our church is open during the day for private prayer, and so items can be dropped off, even though we don’t have any services at the moment. Thank you!

Dear All,
Thank you all so much for your continuing support. With Christmas rapidly approaching, we have been busy sorting out gift boxes and delivering to agencies. So far over 1000 requests have been received and we are very grateful for all your donations.

This year the need for our festive hampers is greater than ever. Our 12 days to Christmas scheme is already up and running (our apologies in not getting this out to you but we had a busy couple of weeks and some things just slipped) but the information for this is on our website if you wanted to catch up.

We are collecting the following items for hampers, if you would like to donate any of these. They can be dropped at the foodbank or in the supermarket collection points. If you cannot get out to shop you can always make a donation online via our website, and just leave a message saying that it is for hampers. The deadline for Christmas food is 30th November. Thank you.
