Christmas Present Appeal

After a difficult year we want to reach out to the people who are suffering the most and bring joy and hope into their lives this Christmas

This year we will be giving a gift card voucher for each child with a small stocking filler. We are asking people to donate gift cards for Charlies or Argos, which will achieve a few objectives, children will receive a gift suitable for their needs, we will support local stores and in the light of the need to quarantine goods it will make the running of the Christmas appeal much more manageable only needing to quarantine gift cards.

We hope people locally who have always been so generous will understand the need for changes this year.

This has been a difficult year for many people in many different ways and the Food Bank saw a vast increase in demand, especially at the start of lockdown. We have been grateful for the support already this year of so many individuals, agencies and churches who have given their time, effort and money. Thank you.

Thank you also to our volunteers who have worked in some challenging situations, with ever changing parameters to ensure the Food Bank has been able to continue and when we were able to reopen the Charity Shop & Prayer Space on Tuesdays and Thursdays, they have again worked within some interesting restrictions. 

Vouchers and food for the Christmas Appeal can be donated Monday – Friday, 10.00 – 15.30 at our Charity Shop, 7-8 Market Street, Newtown. Unfortunately, all donations for the Charity Shop still need to have an appointment made to ensure we have enough room to quarantine your lovely items, please call us on 01686 610340 to make an appointment.

Alternatively you can donate to our JustGiving Page

Together we can make a difference
