HELP US BRING FESTIVE CHEER TO THOSE IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS
We’re working with CCP (Caring for Communities and People) to reduce hunger across Gloucestershire and we need your help!
It’s safe to say that 2020 has been quite the challenge, and we’re all very much looking forward to some festive cheer and a new start in 2021 (COVID permitting)! However, for lots of individuals and families across Gloucestershire, Christmas brings little hope, with loneliness and isolation continuing to loom.
For many, Christmas time draws connotations of loneliness and isolation, which is why doing your bit and supporting one another where we can is ever more important. From families struggling from a loss of income due to Covid-19, now struggling to afford food, to isolated adults or young people with no friends or family to celebrate this special time of year with, many are in need of help across Gloucestershire.
We are proud to play our part to help this honourable cause, and encourage others to do the same, through donations to CCP's annual campaign, the Hamper Scamper. The aim of the campaign is to share hope and joy over the Christmas period by providing seasonal food parcels to families in need.
To help us help others, we’re collecting donations of basic food and festive provisions, which are being collected in a large, wrapped gift box on display inside Eagle Tower on the ground floor. Kind and caring individuals wishing to reach out and help are asked to donate items to Eagle Tower Reception no later than Wednesday 2nd December.
