Give A Gift This Christmas

Last year, more than 170 children living in food poverty woke up on Christmas Day to find a surprise present provided through an annual appeal by the Worcester Foodbank – but they want to help even more families this December.

Worcester Foodbank helps local people in crisis to ensure that no one in the local community goes hungry. When the festive period arrives, many of the families they see find themselves worrying about what will happen over Christmas and getting themselves into more debt as they try to provide for their children. To prevent this, Worcester Foodbank have expanded their offering and from 22nd November to 15th December, they are taking donations of Christmas presents and then meeting with families to best match a present for their child based on their interests.

On behalf of Worcester Foodbank, the Students’ Union is looking for unused/unopened/new presents worth up to £15 and targeted at children aged between 0-18 years old. They ask that no clothing/electrical games or games that require batteries are donated and that all presents are left unwrapped. This is so they can best match the present to the child and give them something they would use.

A box will be left behind Welcome Desk in the Students’ Union for any donations from staff or students, which will then be dropped off weekly at the foodbank.

The foodbank are also happily accepting any wrapping paper donations/gift tag donations.

Yes please:

  • Presents for children aged 0-18 years old
  • Unused/unopened/new
  • Keep Presents unwrapped

No thank you:

  • No more than £15
  • No clothing items
  • No electronics/video games/or anything that requires batteries

For further information please email Eleanor, e.york@worc.ac.uk
