    Story

    Basket Brigade on Meridian News 2016

    One in five children in Bournemouth live below the poverty line according to shocking statistics. More than 6,000 youngsters in the borough live in families struggling to make ends meet & many are going hungry, said the Campaign to End Child Poverty.

    We believe it's important to share our blessings with families who may not have food to eat at Christmas… So from humble beginnings in 2015 (providing food for 25 families) we helped 120 families in 2016 and now in 2017 we plan to gather around 80 volunteers to make and deliver 200 food baskets to 200 families!

    Every penny generously donated will be spent on buying the fresh produce to create our Christmas baskets. Each basket costs £15 to make and deliver (this will feed a family of 4), although 'Just Giving' allows you to donate exactly what you want. So whether you donate £1 or £100 you'll be helping to feed families in Bournemouth and Poole this Christmas.

    Our volunteers will gather together on 23rd December this year to pack and deliver gift baskets with food for Christmas day and the days before and after. While the gifts we will bring are ordinary, the seeds we plant in the lives of the people are special and we need your help to make it happen.

    "One small act of generosity on the part of one caring person can transform the lives of hundreds. It takes only one light to dispel the darkness, and even just one basket can bring hope to a family.” Anthony Robbins
