Christmas Hampers  ​

Would you, your family, your school or your business consider sharing your Christmas cheer with those in need by putting together Christmas hampers or contributing food items that the Basingstoke Foodbank can make into hampers?


"There are no words I can write to say how much my hamper was appreciated that I received from your church and your members.  The items inside helped me a great deal over the festive season. 


I hope my letter finds who were involved happy & well last year being an amazing year for them & their kindness".

Just cover a box with Christmas paper and fill it with all the things that make Christmas special:  

  • Cake, ideally Christmas or yule log

  • Pudding, ideally Christmas or a chocolate version

  • Box mince pies, apple pies, etc
