18th November 2020 |
Preparations are well underway for the 2020 Burgess Hill Community Christmas Hamper Project and now the public are requested to find their Christmas spirit by donating some food in order for 250 hampers to be delivered to those in need in our community.
The project has been running for a number of years and is currently a joint effort, involving Burgess Hill Town Council, The Kings Church, Burgess Hill Food Bank, Burgess Hill Youth & Burgess Hill Lions.
There are just 2 weekends left for food donations to be made at a number of drop- off points.
If you'd like to contribute to the project financially, you can make a donation via the Burgess Hill Foodbank's 'Golden Giving' page
The following items are being requested:

Long-Life Fruit Juice, Tinned Vegetables, Pasta Sauces,
Tinned Meat/Meatballs, Tinned Fruit, Tinned Tomatoes,
Tinned Custard, Angel Delight, Packet Jelly,

****As these are Christmas Hampers for recipients who often can only afford value items, it's politely requested that extra value brands are avoided where possible to make the hampers extrea special for those receiving them .****
