Donations

Donate Christmas hampers, food or money

We rely on donations and volunteers to put together the Christmas hampers. If you would like to donate items, you can do this by either donating items from our list or putting together a whole hamper.  Alternatively, you can donate money to the project, which we will use to buy food for the hampers.

Donate Christmas hampers and food

We make three sizes of hampers: small hampers for 1-2 people, medium hampers for 3-4 people and large hampers for 5-6 people. We put the same items into every hamper and adjust the quantity to suit the size.

Here are posters about the Christmas Hamper Project and a list of contents for hampers. They are in powerpoint, so you can edit them if you want to include a drop-off point for donations in your organisation, etc.

To make your own hamper, cover a cardboard box with wrapping paper and fill it with food items. Please don't include alcohol. 
 

Please bring food items and hampers to Christmas Hamper HQ in Festival Place as early in December as possible, because we deliver most hampers between 4th and 15th December. We continue to receive donations until 22nd December and any food that is not delivered in a hamper will be given out by Basingstoke Foodbank in the new year.

Christmas Hamper HQ in Festival Place (Upper Ground floor, opposite the Apple Store) is open from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Monday to Saturday between 1st and 23rd December.
 

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
