Not Just For Christmas

Delivering Christmas Hamper Bournemouth Foodbank

We’ve been busy over Christmas, so we thought we’d give you an update!

Here are some photos from the Christmas period, to give you a taster.

For a fuller review of 2018, read our ‘Year in the life’ blog post, here.

We’re so grateful for all the generosity that you’ve shown over Christmas. It means a slightly chaotic time for us in the Foodbank warehouse, but it also makes a tremendous difference, so we handle the chaos with festive joy!

Of course (just like pets!), Foodbank is for life, not just for Christmas.

Whilst we see an increase in food donations over the Christmas period, the reality is that the help we provide is essential all year round. Continued food donations are much appreciated, but as we enter the new year, we face real financial challenges. It is therefore critical that we see an increase in fundraising in the year ahead.

To that end, we’re relaunching our 1000 Club.

We’re seeking to find 1000 people who are willing to give £5 each month to the Foodbank. It’s that simple! This will ensure we can continue to help those in our community for the year ahead.

Can you be part of our 1000 club? Send us a message and we’ll get you signed up!
