Christmas Hampers Donated by Churches​

Here is a brief description of the different ways in which you could help to make and/or deliver hampers to people in need this Christmas.  If you think that you or your church would like to be involved in giving hampers or if you would like to know more, please complete the Contact Form at the bottom of this page.  

Assemble Christmas Hampers as a Church or Group

Some churches and home groups hold a Christmas Hamper get-together, to which church members bring items for hampers and boxes to put them in.  There is a list of items that we put in hampers on this page.

 

Church members work together to create the hampers and put a note into each hamper so that the recipient knows that it comes with love from your church.

We can then give you addresses of the hamper recipients, so that you can deliver the hampers directly to them.  Alternatively, Besom can collect the hampers from your church and we can deliver them on your behalf.

Bring Completed Hampers or Food Donations to Church

Church members can make hampers at home or buy items to put into hampers.  There is a list of items that we put in hampers on this page.  They can then take the hampers and food donations to their church. 

Besom can collect the hampers and food from the church, make hampers from the food donations and deliver the hampers on behalf of the church.  

Help Besom to Put Together and Deliver Hampers

Besom will put together hampers on 10th and 12th December and will deliver hampers on 17th and 19th December.  

There is loads to do, so please come and help if you can. 

 

If you would like to help to put together hampers, you just need to bring a pair of scissors and some sellotape.  You can also bring wrapping paper, boxes, food items, if you want to.

If you would like to help to deliver hampers, you just need a car and a friend who can help you to deliver them.
