 Hamper 2020


The Hitchin Christmas Hamper Appeal

Now in its 7th year !

Last year the appeal supported local families and individuals with vouchers to purchase the food they required for the Christmas period. Your generous donations ensured we helped over 150 families with supermarket vouchers and toys for the children

Due to the success of last year we are asking for your help again. We will be giving vouchers as the feedback was that this allowed choice and families could cater to their own dietary needs.

Can we smash last years target? We know with the end of furlough, Universal Credit uplift disappearing and more people being made redundant there are likely to be more families than ever who need our help!

Please donate to support your community at Christmas.

£1 - Buys a selection box of a child

£5 - Buys a Xmas Pud and Minces pies

£10 - Buys a gift for a child.


The Christmas Hamper Team is made up of: Rotary Club of Tilehouse, Hitchin Volunteer Army, Zeo Church, Round Table, Hitchin Partnership CIO, Hitchin Youth Trust, Hitchin Foodbank, Salvation Army of Stotfold.

Foodbank Appeal - for full details please see the attached letter (Parents Tab). The demand for food has increased dramatically which has had an impact on what the Foodbank can provide owing to a dramatic fall off of public donations.  If you are able to support with monetary donation please see their website: www.letchworth.foodbank.org.uk.
