Christmas in a banana box

Please donate food/gifts for the needy this Christmas.

Every year the Storehouse give out Christmas hampers (banana boxes filled with essential food items together with a few seasonal ones) to local households in need.

This year the various agencies have already asked them for 366 hampers – more than ever before.  With each hamper they also send out a gift for each person in the household.  Sometimes this is the only present they receive.

366 hampers means about 800 presents.

Storehouse are desperately short of presents for adults (particularly male) and male and female teenagers.

Please help if you can by donating food items for the hampers or a gift (unwrapped) to help make someone’s 25th December feel a little more like Christmas.

Donations can be put in the box at the back of St Luke’s church.  And a big big thank you from Storehouse!

The last day for putting your gift into the box is Monday December 12th.
