LOCATION: Praise Embassy Church, Lennox Road, RG22 4AP.(Behind B & Q)

DATES: To deliver food and hampers and to give time to help build hampers the dates are; Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for two weeks commencing the 6th and 13th December and Monday and Wednesday the 20th and 22nd December.

TIMES: The team and volunteers will be at Praise Embassy from 10am to 2pm on the above dates.


There is a list of items that we include in hampers below.  Please include children’s toys, if you want to, as we often have the need for them.

We will also need churches to deliver small quantities to people in the area close to their church. Individuals will also be needed to have the joy of delivering hampers.

Please start to gather food, boxes, wrapping paper etc so we can start building hampers starting on the 6th December. Why not do this with your friends and in your various church groups?


The Besom Team cannot do this without you lovely Christians so please let me know the days you can come along and help and we will provide refreshments and music!!

If you need any more information please let me know on


Love and blessings,



On behalf of the Besom Team.
