Charity Donation

As a family, we like to do something for charity at Christmas time. This year, we chose to fill a box with Christmas treats for our local foodbank.

1,332,952

That is the number of three-day emergency food supplies that Trussell Trust Foodbanks gave out between 2017-2018 in the UK.

Christmas is a particularly stressful time of year for families living in poverty. I did a little research and discovered that the foodbanks were in need of Christmas treats such as selection boxes and sweets for children. Of course, healthy meals are vitally important, but at Christmas time, it’s nice for families to have a treat too.

We chose a box that we felt we were realistically able to fill by the beginning of December, and then asked friends and family if they would donate just one item to our box. Everyone was so generous!

The foodbank is a worthy, local cause, so we implore you to do the same for the foodbank in your area. Whether you collect a box of donations or put one item in a collection point. It is a worthwhile cause that can help your local community.
