This Christmas it really bothers us that we cannot support charities and so on as we usually can. Moreover there are people in our local communities finding the expensive time of Christmas more difficult in the pandemic. Christmas for families using foodbanks is going to be harder than ever and there are more of them than ever. So this year La La is running an initiative where we pack up Christmas boxes for the children of these families so they have something to open on Christmas day.
- There will be three age range boxes. 2 to 6 years, 7 to 11 years and 12 to 16 years.
- THE GIFTS MUST BE UNISEX.
- The gifts can all be obtained from a supermarket or online so no one has to go anywhere they wouldn’t ordinarily be going.
- You MUST ensure that the gifts are safe and age appropriate.
- Each box should contain a chocolate selection pack along with some small presents.
- Decorate your box with Christmas paper
- MARK YOUR BOX WITH THE SYMBOL on a gift tag so the foodbank know the age range.
- The value of the box should be around £15.
- Take it to your nearest drop off point
