Christmas Hampers Donated by Schools​

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 school 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 School or Group

Some schools hold a Christmas Hamper get-together, to which church members bring items for hampers and boxes to put them in.  Here is a list of items that we put into hampers.


School children or families 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 school.

Besom then collects the hampers from your school and delivers them on your behalf.

Bring Completed Hampers or Food Donations to your School

School families can make hampers at home or buy items to put into hampers.  Here is a list of items that we put into hampers.  They can then take the hampers and food donations to the school. 

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