Referral form for clients to receive Christmas Hampers
Who can receive a Christmas hamper?
Please refer to us clients who would particularly value a Christmas hamper; families and individuals who will be unable to buy items to make Christmas special unless they go without basic necessities, eg staple food items, heating.
We rely on donations and don’t know how many we will receive, so we want to focus on those in greatest need. We provide hampers to families and individuals in RG21, RG22, RG23, RG24 and RG26.
How to complete the Christmas Hamper Referral Form
The password for the Referral Form is hampers
First name: it's much nicer to have your name, rather than just a number, on your hamper.
Surname: used to check for duplicate referrals, because clients are often referred by more than one agency.
Recipient's address and postcode: used to check for duplicate referrals. Partners in a relationship are sometimes referred separately.
Delivery address and postcode
Delivery phone number: in case no one comes to the door when we try to deliver the hamper
Delivery notes: eg disabled, hard of hearing
Total number in family: so we know how large the hamper should be
Adults (Male M, Female F): helps us to know which toiletries to include
Children (B5 - boy aged 5, G2 - girl aged 2): helps us to know which small toys to include, if we have them
Dietary notes: eg diabetic, gluten free. Please let us know if the recipient is older, because we will try to include food that many older people enjoy, eg fruit cake.
Referrer's name, agency and telephone number: in case we have any queries about the referral

Where to send the completed Referral Form
Please send the completed Referral Form to email@example.com by 6pm on Thursday 30th November 2023. The password is Hampers. We realise that this date seems very early, but it takes time to group the referrals by area, assemble the hampers, get the hampers to the churches and for the churches to deliver them. We will always acknowledge that we have received the Referral Form. If you don't receive an acknowledgement within 24 hours, please resend the form or contact Abigail on 07747-111336 (Whatsapp or call).
We will try to help families and individuals referred after 30th November, but we might only be able to provide festive items to clients receiving Foodbank parcels.
If you have any queries or would like more information, please contact Abigail on 07747-111336 (call or Whatsapp) or at firstname.lastname@example.org
