An appeal has been launched to support two local charities who help families suffering from poverty in the run up to the festive season.
With this year being very difficult for so many, local resident Chris Thomasson has launched a Reverse Advent Calendar Hamper Appeal to help those struggling this Christmas.
People are being asked to set aside a food item each day over a month or so, to build a festive hamper and after only a few days, over 100 hampers have been pledged.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL DONATIONS ARE SENT TO HOPE CENTRAL DURING THE COVID LOCKDOWN (5 NOV - 2 DEC) AND NOT FOOD FRIEND AT ST BARTHOLOMEW'S
The hampers will then be delivered to Food Friend at at St. Bartholomew's Church in Wilmslow and Hope Central at St. Chad's Church in Handforth, who will ensure they go directly to those most in need at Christmas.
Chris Thomasson said "This is such a quick and simple way to build a festive hamper during these incredibly challenging times. When I heard about a similar concept from a relative in U.S. I knew immediately that our community would embrace the idea."
